Google’s autonomous car technology

As we know google is the most strong IT company, so I am surprise to hear that goole was developing the autonomous vehicle technology.

Google Inc. announced that google’s autonomous car has traveled 140,000 miles around the San Francisco without causing any accident. As part of google’s mission to “solve really big problems using technology,” the autonomous cars aim to make driving safer.

This experimental sel-drive car had a safety driver behind the wheel and a software engineer in the passenger seat, according to a Google blogpost by Sebastian Thrun, The car can self-navigate using video cameras, radar sensors and a laser range finder to “see” other traffic, as well as detailed maps. Google’s street view data allows the car to plan its routes by seeing junctions and roads in advance.

For safety sake, a driver and software operator monitor everything to ensure nothing goes wrong. So far, the AVs have logged over 140,000 miles (225,308 km) with only one accident. more than 1.2 million lives are lost every year in road traffic accidents. So the technology has the potential to cut that number.

    With an inbuilt and automatically activated security and safety features make real sense to reduce road car accidents.
