The Future is Nearer Than You Think
Word is that those who have experienced Google’s self-driving car say it is awesome.
“Google’s car uses a wide variety of sensors that detect pedestrians, objects, and infrastructure in real time. It is the sustained rapid collection of conditions data that allows the car to slow or stop suddenly if a pedestrian enters the street, a car suddenly changes lanes or pulls away from the curb, or a lane is closed for construction or an event. It was quite impressive to see all of this happen right before our eyes.”
And this technology will likely be available to consumers within the decade. That’s very promising to us, and undoubtedly very disappointing to the anti-car planners who keep predicting the demise of the automobile.
