Google is currently developing a new technology s developed hat enables cars to drive themselves, according to the company’s latest blog post. The latest innovation is design to solve big problems such as car safety and efficiency.
The Internet search giant developed a technology for cars that could drive themselves and would allow drivers to travel more safely and minimize carbon emissions by making traveling more efficient, the company claims. Its automated vehicles — which it says were operated by professionals and best software engineers to ensure the technology worked smoothly — have already driven more than 140,000 miles in its headquarters in Mountain View, California.
Google’s automated car is geared with video cameras, radar sensors, and a laser range finder to “see” other traffic, as well as detailed maps for road navigations. And because the vehicles would choose to drive the more efficient roads sussed out by its software, Google claims they would end up cutting carbon emissions in the near future. The company also said that the technology could substantially reduce the 1.2 million traffic deaths that occur worldwide.
”One of the big problems we’re working on today is car safety and efficiency. Our goal is to help prevent traffic accidents, free up people’s time and reduce carbon emissions by fundamentally changing car use,” Google’s Distinguished Software Engineer Sebastian said.
