Google Automatic Self-Driving Cars [Video]

Google claims to have developed technology for automated self driving cars that can drive themselves. Google automated Toyota Prius cars, assisted by trained operators drove across Calfornia, USA  and have logged over 140,000 miles. Google says it is a first in robotics research.

The automated cars powered by data from Google data centres, which processes enormous data to sync detailed maps, with video cameras, laser range finders and other radar sensors built on the car – leading to the car being able to drive safely on the road without accidents.

Robert Scoble had an opportunity to spot, chase and record these self driving cars in the videos below.

Google is already mapping the world with its Google Street View Cars, Snowmobiles and Tricycles. If you are driving on Highway 1 between San Francisco and Los Angeles, you might actually spot this Google Toyota Prius car with a strange cylinder on the roof – and a driver who is sitting back and enjoying the view, while not actually driving. Automated cars are finally here for real, and Google is making it a reality.

    Well….this seems scary with so many hazards on the road.

    But, having said that an aircraft can be programmed to take off, fly to it’s destination and land….all on it’s own. Makes you think why they need pilots then.

    The only thing that the aircraft can’t do is taxi itself from the runway to the terminal building. Looks like with google tech they can do this as well.
