Self-Driving\' Car technology by Google

Self-Driving\' Car technology by Google

Self-Driving' Car technology by Google

Designed to help people with mobility issues and to combat congestion. The driverless vehicles would travel through normal roads under the instruction of computers and would help people to combat congestion. There are a lot of people who can't get around, whether you have a disability, whether you're old or you're young. There's also just incredible urban congestion caused by the need for parking. There's highway congestion because humans don't accurately drive on roads with smaller spacing. There's a tremendous opportunity to improve the world.

The car works using a rotating 75,000-dollars laser on its roof called a "lidar" that gives a 360-degree, 3D understanding of the car's surroundings that is accurate to two centimeters. A computer in the trunk compares this information with known maps, and as a result, the car knows every road and traffic light. The car is also capable of reacting to other cars and pedestrians, in any weather conditions and at any time of day.

The project remains in the research and development stage and will not go on sale for some time.
