Google Road Testing Driverless Car with 2nd Generation Toyota Prius


Based on yesterday news, Google is road-testing cars that steer, stop and start without a human driver.

Google is working on an automated / driverless car with the help of DARPA Challenge luminaries Chris Urmson and Anthony Levandowski. Mr. Urmson was the technical team leader on CMU’s 2007 DARPA Urban Challenge winning entry, whilst Mr. Levandowski built the world’s first autonomous motorcycle for the DARPA Grand Challenge as well as an automated pizza delivery vehicle.
