Video of the Week: A First Drive in the Google Driverless Car

Following up on last week’s video about Cruise Automation and their story building driverless car technology, let’s take a look at Google’s driverless car in their video called A First Drive. Enjoy!

From YouTube: Fully autonomous driving has always been the goal of our project, because we think this could improve road safety and help lots of people who can’t drive. We’re now developing prototypes of vehicles that have been designed from the ground up to drive themselves—just push a button and they’ll take you where you want to go! We’ll use these vehicles to test our software and learn what it will really take to bring this technology into the world.

  1. Every day, hundreds of people die or are seriously harmed because we let humans drive cars. Now that’s stupid. Meanwhile, the automated car gets read-ended once every few years and the story appears to be about its shortcomings. Sure, it can be improved, but right now, as it currently works, it’s incredibly safer than I am. Just because I sometimes click paste when I mean copy doesn’t mean my computer is at fault, nor does it mean I’m going back to yellow legal pads for novel writing.
