Google has been testing self driving cars for some time, and now Google has shared more details on how their self driving car project is progressing.
The video below gives us a look at how Google’s self driving cars interact with other vehicles, pedestrians, and cyclists, buses and more.
Since our last update, we’ve logged thousands of miles on the streets of our hometown of Mountain View, Calif. A mile of city driving is much more complex than a mile of freeway driving, with hundreds of different objects moving according to different rules of the road in a small area. We’ve improved our software so it can detect hundreds of distinct objects simultaneously—pedestrians, buses, a stop sign held up by a crossing guard, or a cyclist making gestures that indicate a possible turn. A self-driving vehicle can pay attention to all of these things in a way that a human physically can’t—and it never gets tired or distracted.
Google also announced that their self driving cars have now driven more than 700,000 autonomas miles, you can find out more information over at Google at the link below.
