Google given go-ahead for driverless cars

Google has been given the greenlight to test its driverless cars alongside normal traffic.
Google given go-ahead for driverless cars

So far, the technology giant has been limited to testing its prototype on private tracks, but this summer will mark the start of official public testing, allowing them to drive with regular cars.

Google has previously tested robotic cars on the roads but through a modified version of a Lexus vehicle. This is the company’s first time developing a design of its own.

During the trials, the cars will not be completely robotic. Safety drivers will be present during all tests, allowing them to take control of the steering wheel if something goes wrong.

The cars tested use a similar technology found in the self -driving Lexus RX450H, with a speed limit of 25mph used when driving.

Google has been experimenting with the technology in some fashion for over 6 years, with 11 minor traffic accidents happening in that time. Despite this, Google has insisted that these collisions were not down to the cars themselves, but human error instead.

Whilst production is taking effect in America, the UK has not yet begun widespread testing of robotic vehicles on public roads. However, certain areas of the country have been deemed suitable for public testing, including Bristol, Greenwich and Coventry.
