Google made a self-driving car, and it doesn't have a steering wheel
Google today announced its own design for self-driving cars, which will drive people around without a steering wheel or pedals. It's the latest project from Google X, the company's skunkworks group headed by Google co-founder Sergey Brin. Two people, no drivers The company has already shown off its own self-driving technology, which retrofits existing vehicles made by Toyota and Lexus. However this new version, which was announced by Brin at the Recode conference, is a new design that fits two people, and is driven entirely by computer using a variety of on-board computers and sensors. Google says the program is currently in a prototype phase, but that it plans to build around 100 early versions of the vehicles for testing this summer. It uses off the shelf parts, for now This latest prototype was made using off-the-shelf car parts, Brin says. "The reason I'm super excited about these prototypes is the ability to change the world and the community around you," Brin said.
