Google testing driverless cars
car uses video cameras, radar sensors and laser range finders to avoid other vehicles and continue on a pre-defined route via satellite navigation. There is a driver on standby mode to takeover in case of any system failure or emergency. With this innovation Google aims to reduce the number of lives which are lost to road accidents by half and also encourage fatigue free commuting and car-sharing.The technology however is still many years away from production stage so we would still need to drive our own cars for some time to come.
