Although Google has been working on self-driving car project for quite a while, it unveiled the first prototype this Tuesday. This car is designed and developed to handover the driving responsibility from human to machine.
Reportedly, the self-driving car prototype from the tech-giant run on itself using strong sensor technology, coupled with software. As it does not require a driver to operate the car, it will not have an accelerator pedal, brake pedal or steering wheel. All it will be having is a push button to start and stop.
Even though the outer appearance of the prototype is a bit weird, this design will however help the basic objective of the vehicle. The prototype is powered with sensors that can detect objects from a distance of more than two football fields in all directions. Inside the self-driving car, it will have a seating capacity for two adults, plus some extra storage space.
Google has confirmed that it will build 100 such prototypes and will test a few initially with manual controls. However, it may take a couple of years or more to get it on the track. Once it delivers the desired results, Google along with its partners will bring this technology for the general public.
