Google's Self-Driving Car Has No Steering Wheel or Pedals

TheStreet (May 28, 2014) — Google is unveiling its own prototype of a self-driving car in which there's no steering wheel or pedals. Instead, the electric-powered car is driven solely through computers and sensors. The only manual controls are a stop/go button and an emergency button. Chris Urmson, director of Google's self-driving project said in a blog post that safety was the most important aspect of designing the prototype. He says the self-driving cars have sensors that remove blind spots and are able to detect objects that are more than two football fields away. The first vehicles have speed capped at 25 miles per hour. Inside, just two seats with seatbelts and a screen that show the route. Video provided by TheStreet

TFL Car (Dec. 14, 2013) — ( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The just revealed Automated Ford Fusion Hybrid looks like it has sprouted a pair of spinning horns.

According to Ford this is the next step toward autonomous driving cars. But this third generation of potentially driverless cars is a test bed of new innovations that Ford says you'll soon see in many of their new cars.

Google's Acquisition of Nest Closes the Loop on the Smart Home

TheStreet (Jan. 14, 2014) — Google's acquisition of Nest completes the circle of connectivity. Google Glass was already able to speak to cars like the Mercedes Benz, so extending that reach to Nest completes the loop. Other smart home companies like Control4Home also work with many mobile devices to keep the inter-connectivity loop complete. Control4Home works with 7500 different devices and recently partnered with Tivo to connect home to phone to TV. The idea is to have a complete connection between car, home and phone.
