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

Ford Reveals Automated Fusion Hybrid That Can Almost Drive Itself

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. But the spinning horns are in fact four LiDAR infrared sensors that can scan the road 2.5 million times every second creating a viral map for the car. 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. In another accurate and informative TFLcar video check out the latest efforts by Ford to build a safer and perhaps self-driving car.
