Google’s self driving car is almost ready to be tested on public roads. Google announces that it will test the self driving cars in public roads in Mountain View this summer.
Project director Chris Urmson says that a few of the prototype vehicles will drive around Mountain View, California, where the company is based. Safety drivers will accompany the cars, which will be capped at 25mph. Unlike Google’s ultimate vision for the vehicles, these cars will come with a removable steering wheel, accelerator pedal, and brake pedal.
Google says that the fleet has logged almost a million miles on the road, or what Urmson characterizes as “about 75 years of typical American adult driving experience.”
“We’re looking forward to learning how the community perceives and interacts with the vehicles and to uncovering challenges that are unique to a fully self-driving vehicle”
Says Chris urmson
In this week google’s car has meet 11 accident and the company claims that its vehicles weren’t at fault in any instance. This isn’t a full rollout yet, but, if you’re in Mountain View, get ready to embrace robotic commuters on a more regular basis.
