Google claims Google Self Driving Car drives much better then you.
Google, the tech giant is testing self-driving cars from last six years. Google has a more than 20 self-driving cars. All cars have self-driven experience of around a million miles in this period. Google self driving car is driven with more efficiency and accuracy. The company is working very hard to make more efficient their cars. Google self driving car has averaging around 10,000 self-driven miles per week. It is Google’s success that their cars have very low accident record. All of Google self driving car has only eleven “minor accidents” during last six years.
All eleven accidents caused by mistake of other human drivers. Google’s driver less cars have been hit from behind. Google self driving car does not involve a direct hit. According to Google’s Chris Urmson:
Over the 6 years since we started the project, we have been involved in 11 minor accidents (light damage, no injuries) during 1.7 million miles of autonomous and manual driving with our safety drivers behind the wheel. And not once was the Google self driving car the cause of the accident. A number of U.S. drivers checking their mobile while driving. This is caused the most number of road accidents.
According to Google lots of drivers are not paying attention to the road. In a day time in America, there are around 660,000 people driving the car and checking their gadgets instead of watching the road. It is the major cause for road accidents. Drivers most time weaving in and out of their lanes. Google self driving car is beating people on this dimension of road safety. Google self driving car has 360 degree visibility and 100% attention out in all directions at all times. Google’s newest sensors can keep track of other vehicles, cyclists, and pedestrians out to a distance of nearly two football fields. Google is amassing a wealth of driving data which is used to identify dangerous situations before an accident happens. It will identify driver’s behavior like lane-drifting, speed variation or red-light running. These are leading indicators of significant collisions. Google is working hard to make their cars more efficient.
