By now, I’m certain you’ve heard of Google’s project to create the driverless car. It has the ability to navigate around pedestrians as well as other cars.
What you may not know is the scope of this ambitious project. Think about Google Maps. Google has the traffic information of the entire world in its pocket. They built their own driverless cars because it makes no sense for car manufacturers to support them. It’s a conflict of interest.
When, not if, Google’s driverless cars become mainstream, they will become the most convenient form of travel. They will replace taxis as the on-demand transportation in cities, and eventually rural areas as well.
This car may seem gimmicky now, but in a few years the technology could be completely assimilated into our society.
