It is official! Google has finally announced that their self driving cars will be tested on actual streets outside their headquarters in Mountain View, California.
Google’s Autonomous cars will be equipped with a “safety driver” package including a removable steering wheel, an accelerator and brake pedal so the driver can interfere if he had to.
However, with limiting speed to 40.2km/h and using the same software as the autonomous Lexus RX450h crossovers, safety is guaranteed. Since the beginning of the project, the Self driving Lexus RX450h have registered million autonomous miles on the roads and 75 years of American driving experience.
