Google builds self-driving car

June 10, 2014

Google has began building a self-driving car that will hopefully begin testing later this year.

Google plans to build 100 prototype vehicles which will be tested by drivers with manual controls.

The cars won’t have a steering wheel, accelerator or brake. The software and sensors does all the work for the driver.

The prototypes will have a top speed of only 40km/h for safety whilst testing is undergone.

These vehicles will be battery powered and include safety features such as a flexible windshield and foamlike material covering the front of the car.

Creative idea, but personally I wouldn't like to ride in one because I just sounds so dangerous! I know google are a well-trusted company but a self-driving car? I think that's taking it a bit too far. But keep creating google!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I really want those cars. They should be safe. Google are a really big company so people trust them. They wouldn't want to betray that trust.

I think it is bad because amanging a glitch or on of the sensor fail or it doesn't update the map and started driving over things.
