Google Builds a Self-driving Car from Scratch

Google Builds a Self-driving Car from Scratch

Urmson goes on to reveal that the team is planning to build about 100 prototypes of the self-driving cars to test out different features. And while the current models allow for no driver input, later this northern summer their test drivers will also begin trialling prototypes with some opt-in manual controls in case of emergencies. Urmson says, “If all goes well, we’d like to run a small pilot program here in California in the next couple of years. We’re going to learn a lot from this experience, and if the technology develops as we hope, we’ll work with partners to bring this technology into the world safely.” The team have also launched a new Google+ page for the project and they are keen to hear feedback about which features “passengers” want from their future, self-driving car.
