Google’s Self Driving Cars
Google’s self-driving car looks delightfully spacious, so just forget leg cramps. The prototype shown is, however, without the removable steering wheel. The big red button visible in the picture is where the wheel will fit. In further additions, an accelerator, and a brake pedal would be put in place if the person wants to take over the wheels in Google’s self-driving car.
They have sensors designed to detect objects as far as two football fields away in all directions, including pedestrians, cyclists and vehicles—or even fluttering plastic shopping bags and rogue birds. The software processes all the information to help the car safely navigate the road without getting tired or distracted.
Google assures that this is just a prototype and the display was to give an insight to the public about the company’s vision of their self-driving car. The cars running on the streets in Mount View have been voted safe and fit for commercial use. Google has vowed to hand over to its customers an even better version of this autonomous vehicle in 2020.
