Greetings, I know it seems that I have been a Google-head lately, but you can’t blame me.
Life is almost like the Jetson’s thanks to Google. Google has managed to create a driveless car, but I’m sure many of you have heard, read, and/or talked about this already. Now before pulling your money out of the bank to purchase one, it’s not available yet. However, with 700,000 miles of testing completed, it sure will be in due time. For the past few months I have read different articles and research papers on where is our transportation system going, and it all seems too futuristic. The driveless car allows the user, not driver, to enjoy the ride without worrying about steering or pedals. Use your car how you use your cellphone or iPad, carefree. Now the car only goes 25 mph, so it still has a way to go to catch up with Tesla’s Roadster. The intelligence of the car allows it to detect nearby and incoming traffic, and does all these sophisticated tasks without you lifting a finger. Sensors are built in all around the car, and if you may have noticed the large rotating sensor on the top of the car. This top sensor can scan more than 200 feet away in any direction.
California has to pass a few laws to actually get this car on the road legally, and from there I guess other states to follow. I’m excited about this because it’s the epic combination of automobiles and high-tech. The automobile industry is transforming and backyard mechanics may require an electrical engineering to stay abreast. Make sure you read more upon this and share with your friends!!!
