Today, Google announced the design for their own self-driving car. Their design has no steering wheels, pedals or even brakes. It is the latest “out-of-this-world” project from the team at Google X. Google has previously shown off their self-driving technology by implementing them in existing vehicles like a Toyota Prius or a Lexus RX450h.
The new prototype vehicle is a brand-new design, which fits two people and all of the driving is done by a combination of on-board computers and exterior sensors. Google has also said that they plan to build 100 vehicles, so then they can be tested this summer.
The look of the prototype design is rounded and a bit like a cartoonish Fiat 500. Google says they’re built with foam and flexible windshields that reduce the chance for injury if they do collide with anything
