Very Interesting:10 Rare Facts About Google Self-driving Car by Techoftoday: 6:39pm On Jun 10, 2015
We all know that Google is developing technology for self-driving cars. We all know that Google self-driving cars will hit public roads in California along with their safety drivers on board this summer. We are aware they had been involved in 12 accidents since Google started testing them on public roads over the past six years. But there are 10 things you may not know about Google autonomous cars. Here are they:

Google self-driving cars have no steering wheel or gas pedal to control the direction the car goes. Google's software known as ''Google chauffeur'' and computers carry out those tasks instead, and can be controlled at the touch of a button.

Google autonomous cars have now driven 1 million miles on public roads without a human driver taking over control, which is equivalent of 75 years of driving by a typical American. Superb right?

Google's driverless cars have about $150,000 in equipment and the Lidar system mounted on top of the vehicle that takes a detailed 3D map of its surrounding cost as much as $70,000.

Google robotic vehicles have never rear-ended any other manually driven car while on test-drive. All of the incidents that Google reported were the cause of human drivers running into them. Human drivers are horrible.

There are 100 or more of Google fully functioning prototype self-driving vehicles built from the ground up.

Google self-driiving car are overly cautions like your grandma while in public roads. They are never the first off the line at a stop, they don't speed and accelerate quickly and very polite .

Google self-driving prototype cars are battery-powered electric vehicles. In other words they get their electricity from batteries, as opposed to traditional car that use premium motor spirit or gasoline.

Google driverless cars can not travel in heavy rain or snow and their software not accurate enough to recognise small animals like squirrels, badger etc and might run them over.

Google cars are designed to look like humans so that you do not harm them. That's because by conventional wisdom humans give great care to things that resembles them. Would you destroy objects that look like you?
