Hey! Who’s driving that car?
Well, it’s actually a robotic car that uses sensors and tracking devices for movement around the car through computer generated technology. If that answers your question.
Google’s self-driving car seems a bit far off in the future, but theoretically speaking it could be a very progressive concept to take off if everyone can get on board with the idea. Which won’t happen for a very long time.
People will want reassurance that self-driving cars are 100 percent safer than driving a car yourself before they start using one on a daily basis.
“Our cars use their sensors and software to sense objects like pedestrians, cyclists, vehicles and more, and are designed to safely drive around them.”
Google’s self-driving car on the road
A new report has studied Google cars and says that by taking human emotions and human errors out of the equation, we could reduce deaths on the road by 90 percent!
Let’s picture that everyone who has a car has switched over to Google’s self-driving car.
If you are not the most confident driver, this could be a much safer way to allow everyone to be equal on the road.
No road rage, no collisions, no speeding, no drunk driving.
As much as we like to think we are all great drivers, we really aren’t.
But then there is the control issue. Most people want to have control on the road and not rely on a computer when it comes to their lives.
Google and other automotive manufacturers have said that the technology to start building self-driving cars should be ready as early as 2020.
