Self driving cars and the future of mobility
Welcome to the end of road rage. Welcome, the Google driverless car.
The streets of California have become a bit more peaceful lately, thanks in part to Dr. Sebastian Thrun - who happens to be at the front of some the biggest technological innovations coming our way, including the Google Driverless Car and Google Glass. The car, or rather the fleet of cars – have been making their way around the streets of California these days, answering one of Thrun’s very personal quests - to save lives and reduce traffic accidents.
"We've successfully driven roughly 200,000 miles across a wide variety of terrain and road conditions, and we're very pleased with the performance.”
