Transcript of DRIVERLESS CARS
Companies developing and/or testing driverless cars include Audi, BMW, Ford, Google, General Motors, Volkswagen and Volvo.
Google's test involved a fleet of self-driving cars -- six Toyota Prii and an Audi TT -- navigating over 140,000 miles of California streets and highways.
A single accident occurred during one of the infrequent occasions when a human was driving.
Another test of over 1000 miles was completed successfully with no human intervention.

What is Google Driverless Car?
The Google Driverless Car is a project by Google that involves developing technology for autonomous cars.
Google Driverless Car
Elderly and disabled people are able to drive wherever they want to.
No more boring driving on highways.
Stop looking for a parking spot. Alight where you need, and your car finds a spot all by itself and picks you up when you’re finished.
Work while you drive your car drives!
When hackers get into this information there is no limit to what they can do with it.
While cars drive themselves what happens to people that are behind the wheel as their profession.
Out of the blue computer failure.
Objectives of Driveless Cars
• To ensure safety of the people within the vehicle and on the road
• To avoid human errors
• Follow and regulate driving rules and maintain peace with other vehicles
• To lessen the car accidents occurring
• To maintain an easy flow on the road and avoiding traffic and conflict
• Reaches destinations on time .
• To evolve the generation of transportation to the next level
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Urmson said that the "heart of our system" is a laser range finder mounted on the roof of the car.
The device, a Velodyne 64-beam laser, generates a detailed 3D map of the environment.
The car then combines the laser measurements with high-resolution maps of the world, producing different types of data models that allow it to drive itself while avoiding obstacles and respecting traffic laws

The project is currently being led by Google engineer Sebastian Thrun, director of the Stanford Artificial Intelligence Laboratory and co-inventor of Google Street View.
Thrun's team at Stanford created the robotic vehicle Stanley which won the 2005 DARPA Grand Challenge and its US$2 million prize from the United States Department of Defense.
The team developing the system consisted of 15 engineers working for Google, including Chris Urmson, Mike Montemerlo, and Anthony Levandowski who had worked on the DARPA Grand and Urban Challenges.
Driverless cars can really help the Philippines in terms of safety and protection.
Nowadays, there are a lot of accidents due to human errors so with the help of Driverless Cars, it may decrease the number of accidents in our country.
It is robotic vehicle that is
designed to travel between
destinations without a human operator.
To qualify as fully autonomous, a vehicle must be able to navigate without human intervention to a predetermined destination over roads that have not been adapted for its use.
