"Google it" just took on a new meaning...
« on: May 29, 2014, 03:18:16 AM »
Google is to start building its own self-driving cars

Google offering its own self-driving cars, rather than modifying vehicles built by other manufacturers.

Maybe they'll design the car so it can also be driven using Google Glasses? 8)

The car will have a stop-go button but no controls, steering wheel or pedals. Pictures of the Google vehicle show it looks like a city car with a "friendly" face, designed to make it seem non-threatening and help people accept self-driving technology.

Actually this is a good article on Linkedin

He makes some good points about not needing to own a car and just hiring a self drive for the trip you are going to make:

Quote

We therefore donít really need to own a vehicle anymore if we donít want to; or even own several as the automakerís business model would prefer.

Rather than have our multi-purpose vehicle sit idle some 90% of the day, we can hire a vehicle suitable for our need; a shared self-driving electric 2-seater for our commute (and work on the way); an SUV for the group trip at the weekend.
