Google's self-driving car

The tech giant Google is building its own self-driving car, with no steering wheel accelerator pedal, or brake pedal, just a stop-go button and a display showing the route.   Watch the video…

Chris Urmson, director of Google’s self-driving car project, said:

‘Our software and sensors do all the work.’

“If all goes well, we’d like to run a small pilot program here in California in the next couple of years.

We’re going to learn a lot from this experience, and if the technology develops as we hope, we’ll work with partners to bring this technology into the world safely.

We’re now exploring what fully self-driving vehicles would look like by building some prototypes; they’ll be designed to operate safely and autonomously without requiring human intervention.

It was inspiring to start with a blank sheet of paper and ask, ‘What should be different about this kind of vehicle?’

“We started with the most important thing: safety.”
