Google has been testing out its self-driving cars, which have now completed more than 300,000 miles of testing, by using advanced computer science.
According to Google the self driving cars, of which about a dozen are on public roads in some US states at any given time, covered a wide range of traffic conditions, under computer control, without a single accident.
“As a next step, members of the self-driving car team will soon start using the cars solo (rather than in pairs), for things like commuting to work. This is an important milestone, as it brings this technology one step closer to every commuter. One day we hope this capability will enable people to be more productive in their cars. For now, our team members will remain in the driver’s seats and will take back control if needed.”
