GOOGLE TESTING DRIVERLESS CARS

After conquering the web Google engineers have set their sights on making our streets a safer place and making driving hassle free.

Their solution is to free humans from mundane driving duty by developing driverless cars. Google

has already developed technology which enables cars to navigate on

their own and has so far clocked up over 2,30,000 km in California with

seven such driverless cars.The driverless car uses

video cameras, radar sensors and laser range finders to avoid other

vehicles and continue on a pre-defined route via satellite navigation.

There is a driver on standby mode to takeover in case of any system

failure or emergency. With this innovation Google aims to reduce the

number of lives which are lost to road accidents by half and also

encourage fatigue free commuting and car-sharing.

The technology however is still many years away from production stage

so we would still need to drive our own cars for some time to come.

Nice. But I don't think I can fully trust these cars for mountain roads. I guess before considering its distance navigation feature, it must first be ensured to be highly tolerant with heavy traffic situations.

Driverless cars seem to be all the rage these days. In July, a pair of bright orange fans embarked upon an 8,000 mile journey from Italy to China, with the caveat that these two vans would drive themselves

....

Will 2010 be remembered not just as the dawn of the electric car, but of the driverless car too?
