Google starts road tests of self-driv­ing car pro­to­types

Metro USA (Boston) - - NEWS -

Google said it had started test­ing the pro­to­types of its self-driv­ing cars on Moun­tain View, Cal­i­for­nia, roads, with safety driv­ers aboard.

The pro­to­types will join Google’s Lexus cars, which use the same self-driv­ing soft­ware, the com­pany said in a blog post.

Although the pro­to­types are de­signed to work with­out a steer­ing wheel or ped­als, safety driv­ers will have a re­mov­able steer­ing wheel, ac­cel­er­a­tor pedal and brake pedal dur­ing the tests.
