Who built it?The man who built Google self driving car
Test Drive300,000 miles2 AccidentsLombard StreetLake TahoeGolden Gate Bridge
IS IT WORTH IT? Advantages Disadvantages
Safer for more peoples. Expensive
BackgroundGoogle team of 15 engineersSebastian ThrunStanley33,000 annual deathsSafetyProject starts 2011
What is it?It is the first truly driverless electric car.With two seats and room enough for a small amount of luggage.
Where is it?It operates in and around California, primarily around the Mountain View area where Google has its headquarters.
What does it do?The car is summoned by a smartphone for pick up at the users location with the destination set. There is no steering wheel or manual control, simply a start button and a big red emergency stop button.
Whats it like?
the car has ample room despite being small, likely due to the lack of the normal controls taking up space in the cabin, and "that this felt a lot like a theme park ride".
How does it work?The software can recognize objects, people, cars, road marking, signs and traffic lights, obeying the rules of the road and allowing for multiple unpredictable hazards, including cyclists. It can even detect road works and safely navigate around them.
How safe is it?Safety measures provided:Seat beltsFoam bumpersFlexible windscreenEmergency stop buttonTraffic light control
Why dam cute?The cars cute looks and friendly face were created intentionally to be very Googley according to its designers, to put both other road users and passengers at ease with the new technology
Reason behind being cute:The shell is also designed to give the sensors the best view of the surroundings.
Why now?Google says it has gone as far as it can with the current customized vehicles and that a new platform is needed to take the project and technology to the next step and closer to a product people can actually use.
Does it look like a car from inside?It looks same as the other cars but without steering and gear system. The car has two traditional car seats, and has standard seat belts. It also provides more comfortable experience.
Who will build it for me?
Google is proving the technology, but it is unlikely to make the cars for sale once that technology is ready for the mass market. Toyota, Ford or Fiat will be the Google car in the future
When can I get one?
Google says the cars should be road-ready by early next year, but that testing would take more than two years.
AFFORDABILITYThe featured Prius, which starts at around $24,000, is optioned up with a
$75,000 to $80,000 Velodyne LIDAR system, visual and radar sensors estimated to cost about $10,000, and a nearly $200,000 GPS array.
Not to mention the cost of the driving computer and software.
It may cost more than a Ferrari 599.
Political & Regulatory Issues
who is to blame in an accident?Google?Car Mechanics?Car Owner?Passenger?
Very useful .
Human safety, infrastructure efficiency, quality of life and a ready customer base are just a few of the key factors
Vehicles could be ready for market in as little as three to five years.
closer to a product people can actually use.
