I should have known that Google would show up somewhere in this Huffington Post article:
Bay Area tech giant Google has been leading the way in self-driving cars. The team behind the project asserts that the technology is largely already there and their self-driving cars are ready to hit the road right now.
Earlier this year, Google took a number of state legislators on a test non-drive of their driverless cars.
“I had the pleasure of going out for a drive on the autonomous vehicle,” California state Senator Alan Lowenthal told Reuters. “I have to say that there are some still issues with it, but it’s a better driver than I am.”
Earlier this week, Google engineers announced that their fleet of self-driving cars have logged a combined total of 300,000 miles.
