Google's Self-driving Car Closer to Production


Google took the wraps off its latest, perhaps the final prototype, of self-driving vehicle just in time for Christmas holiday.

According to Google, this is fully functional car that's ready for autonomous driving on real streets. The company is planning on driving this cute little thing on public roads.  Comparing the latest version to the earlier one (below) and a digital rendering image, it retains most of the design cues and proportions.


A post on Google Plus reads, "We’re going to be spending the holidays zipping around our test track, and we hope to see you on the streets of Northern California in the new year.  Our safety drivers will continue to oversee the vehicle for a while longer, using temporary manual controls as needed while we continue to test and learn. Happy Holidays!"

It clearly shows that Google has been working hard on the project, and come up with production version of the self-driving car in the near future.

"We've been working on different prototypes-of-prototypes, each designed to test different systems of a self-driving car—for example, the typical car parts like steering and braking, as well as the self-driving parts like the computer and sensors," Google said.

"We've now put all those systems together in this fully functional vehicle—our first complete prototype for fully autonomous driving."

Most major automakers have been working on autonomous or semi-autonomous technology for years, but none has managed to develop fully autonomous production car to this date.
