If you’re like me, you will be very appreciative to what Google is doing with their driverless cars. Just imagine the future days when we won’t have to drive our cars to work, and that time is replaced with … SLEEP. And to show just how close we are getting to those days, Google has announced a new milestone for their fleet of Self-Driving vehicles. According to Google, their driverless vehicles, “which about a dozen are on the road at any given time, have now completed more than 300,000 miles of testing. They’ve covered a wide range of traffic conditions, and there hasn’t been a single accident under computer control.”
Though this is an amazing achievement, Google still admits that “there’s still a long road ahead.” Stating further that, “we’ll need to master snow-covered roadways, interpret temporary construction signals and handle other tricky situations that many drivers encounter.” Additionally, Google will transition the team to using the cars “solo rather than in pairs”, which is another important milestone.
