Google's new car doesn't have a steering wheel
May 29 , 2014
Google's latest car is built without a steering wheel, brakes or a gas pedal. However, the New York Times notes that the two-seater includes improved sensors that allow it to see into long distance.
Google co-founder Sergey Brin said the vehicle is "about altering the world for people who are not well-served by transportation today." The company also noted that self-driving cars, which include faster reaction speeds could reduce deaths resulting from accidents.
"Just imagine: You can take a trip downtown at lunchtime without a 20-minute buffer to find parking. Seniors can keep their freedom even if they can't keep their car keys. And drunk and distracted driving? History," Google's blog reads.
