Default Nevada first state to license Google's Self Driving car.

Yep, Nevada has become the first state to officially grant a drivers license to Google's Self Driven car.

Driverless cars will soon be a reality on the roads of Nevada after the state approved America's first self-driven vehicle licence.

"Dude, Where's my car?" just became real.

So if cars can now drive themselves can't wait for the first car to be hacked so it steals itself.

Amazing demonstration.

It will be interesting to see what happens the first time one of the driverless cars is in an accident. The AI may be very good but you can't avoid some accidents. Getting rear ended while behind a car at a stoplight, for instance. Not the AI fault, but...

I say this car is fucking stupid.

The stupid car may take stupid drivers out from behind the wheel.

I'm torn.

And possibly another way for our wonderful government to watch over you with this computer controlled car.

LOL! I don't mean this in a nasty way but 125 years ago, someone just like you was saying "I just plain don't and will not trust those horseless carriages. If there's a collision, who's at fault? The motor? I will keep my horse! He won't run into anybody."

well they already watch over us through the phone.

Hackers cant hack something they dont have physical access to or isnt on a network.

Traffic will be a thing of the past if its controlled via a program that can calculate distance, speed, location, etc... and not by inaccurate drivers.

The more cars that get this, the less accidents there will be since they will be able to communicate between each other which can allow faster speeds with less accidents since the cars have sensors to know where EVERYTHING is around it at all times compared to humans who have blind spots and distractions

Im just Not really a fan of technologies that start taking human elements out of everyday life. Even if some of those elements are flawed.

Computer controlled car for those that are old, handicap or just physically hate driving. I can see that as a plus.

But the way of the future. I sure hope not.

Personally I love driving and millions of other do too. Leave us alone.

Unfortunately for those of us who like to drive, a survey of Americans would probably be 70% or more in favor of robot drivers. Going to and from work in a DD, I'd like a robot, too.

Fortunately, the change will take a long time and we can always find 442s hidden inside underground mall walls.

So how exactly does it work? It a route mapped out that it has to navigate or what?

Personally I dont like it. Seems too easy for someone to take control of. Lots of other things I dont like. I'm all for technology in cars, but I like to be in control of my own car. I have a hard enough time riding as a passenger.

Also, how am I going to program the AI driver so it knows when to spray the car?

Remember the whole Toyota stuck throttle fiasco not too long ago?
I can only imagine the lawsuits against Google when these things start to crash.

^^This. Seems like a cool idea. Might be nice if the elderly, handicap, and so on could order them if need be. However it's just something about it being mass produced for everyone that really bothers me..

It uses 360' infrared and sonar to detect objects and calculate distance. Plus bigger gps sensors for more accurate pin pointing + google maps most likely for navigation
