  1. Five months ago, Google announced it had developed technology for cars that can drive themselves. Now, the company has decided it is ready to show off at least some of the fruits of its labor.

    If people were interested in total 'automation' ...... then they would not hesitate to board a 'pilot less' plane, so, I don't see it going too far for now. May be it has some appeal with people who don't really like or enjoy driving though. Lastly, what will happen if the software crashes, will it cause the car to crash into 'nearest obstacle' ?

    Pretty neat. Well done, Google.

    P.S. Shouldn't it be "closed course" not "close course"?

    I was expecting a 5 mph crawl through the parking lot with some driving over the cones for proof that it was not human. But that car was practically racing through the cones! Impressive.

    Yes this was a pretty crazy video. I was thinking the same thing with really slow driving. Than the car took off and was laying down rubber in the corners. I don't think I am ready to let my car drive its like that.
     
  8. This old dinosaur thinks this is a rotten idea. What if I collided into this thing? This really limits the opportunity to engage in some healthy heart-pumping road rage. I'll stick with my Jaguar, thank you very much!
