The head of Google’s self driving car program explains what is up. I was able to hear him this week at TED, and will update more of his remarks later. But he was pretty convincing that ultimately creating a true driverless or fully autonomous vehicle makes more sense than a driver assisted vehicle. What is interesting about the video below is the story of how they are trying to invent the autonomous vehicle from the ground up, rather than as a retro-fit (which we’ve seen on the streets for some time). Bottom line is that I think this whole tech could be closer than we normally think, as in 5 years or less.
