Google builds their own self-driving car without steering wheel
Google, a company that we hear does internet stuff, has gone ahead and built their own car, and a self-driving one at that, with not even a steering wheel.
Once the fantasy element of sci-fi movies, the prototype self-driving car is designed to operate safely and autonomously without requiring human intervention. This is the first time that they’ve built a complete car, unlike their previous prototypes, which were Toyota Prius and Lexus RX models with equipment tacked on. The cars can read road conditions, figure out cyclist signals and even spot construction signs.
It is unlikely that a car with a completely human-free driving experience will ever be allowed on the streets, based on current laws, but things could change in a decade or two. And we could send babies to do test-drives for us.
Maybe the GCC-spec version will even have an automated tailgating option. What other features would you like to see?
