Google Unveils Driverless Car

Google continues their self-driving car project with a new vehicle that does away with human intervention completely. Strange at first site, the two-seater Google car does not have a steering wheel, brakes, or gas pedal but instead come equipped with sensors and software designed to help them avoid accidents. One button is included, however, for starting the car and in case of an emergency. With a production run of around 100 prototypes, the current version can’t go any faster than 25 miles per hour and has a range of about 100 miles, powered by an electric motor.

Keep an eye out for pilot tests in California, specifically at Google’s sprawling corporate campus, and watch a test video below. (via)
