Google Tests Driver-Less Car

Google is testing a car that drives itself automatically in traffic.

Search engine Google is all set to go places with a car that it has developed, which drives itself automatically in traffic.

Google has been testing a car, on the roads of California, which can steer, stop and start without a driver. The car comes attached with video cameras on the roof, along with radar sensors and a laser range finder to see other traffic.

The car has covered 140,000 miles and was accompanied by a engineer in the driver’s seat who was ready to take control of the vehicle instantly by grabbing the wheel or touch the brake should something go wrong with the system. The car so far has witnessed only one accident, when one of the cars was rear-ended by a driver at a stop light.

The car is aimed at preventing traffic accidents, free up people’s time and reduces carbon emissions
