Google Unveils Self-Driving Car Prototype

Obviously Google has been work­ing at the whole self-driving car thing for some time now. But the vehi­cles they’ve had on the road previ­ously have simply been exist­ing cars that have been modi­fied as needed.

What they are unveil­ing here is a car that has been designed from the ground up with the idea that it’s going to drive itself. So no steer­ing wheel and no pedals. Which, it turns out, gives you a lot of extra leg room.

As some­one who spends about 2 hours (and 80 miles) a day driving, I’m very keen to see further progress with this tech­nol­ogy. I can see that the complete absence of a steer­ing while might take getting used to though.
