Google will launch driverless cars in California State. First driverless cars will be shown on the street of California City. Google confirm that this car are self-driving cars and drive comfortably on the freeways. In the city there are lots of big challenges for Google’s driverless car, because there are lots of pedestrian, bicyclists and most challenging is blind zone.
Google says that new self-driving smart car can handle lots of urban situation but they are working to make car’s computer more batter to handle the walker, motorist which includes bikes and bicyclists and blind zone of the car.
Google X lab’s project director Chris Urmson said “We are growing more optimistic that we are heading toward an achievable goal a vehicle that operates fully without human intervention”.
Google will launch this driverless car for public in 2017. On initial stage google prefer that human drivers would be ready to take control of the driveless car when car computer is not able to control the situation. This driverless car will be awesome for long drive on freeways where you can read, eat, play a game on computer, watch movies or TV shows and sleep as well. Google says that one day car computer will work safer than human driver. Once this driverless smart car will launched that may be its reduce the accident made by human’s mistake.
Google and car makers working on this smart project for driverless car, where sensors fitted in this car give the 3D maps surrounding the car to the google software. Google software use this 3D map and detect the pedestrians, motorist including bikes and bicycles, moving vehicles and other objects like curbs, parked car, walk way and signs. Google software is also read signals, stop sign and school crossing guards.
