Google’s self-driving vehicles are mastering complex situations on public roads, from cars going the wrong way to bicycles darting in front of traffic, as the technology company strives to win the high-profile race to achieve full vehicle automation, executives said today.
I like what Google has given us! This is a real automotive breakthrough in the auto sector. What has really has our attention is that the Google car can detect whether a moving object is a child or a bicycle and anticipates that both can make fast, unpredictable movements. The car’s driving system calculates the probability of such movements and uses the results to determining how the vehicle will react.
With the advancements in Gps navigation, we will likely see these become very safe and reliable. The amount of technology the self-driving car has utilized will also propel other advancements in safety and design throughout the entire industry.
We talked with the owner of a popular automotive repair center, Jeff owns Garfield Auto Repair Center he said about the self-driving car:
This will certainly make the roads safer and allow for many other applications like simulation or training exercises and less intense safety protocols in our current human driven vehicles.
No matter what I think Google is going to impact another market that is worldwide, and show undoubtedly that they are a powerhouse in any industry.
