Here is the latest report that Google’s Self-Driving Car now have a licence from Nevada in order to run the car in streets. Actually this report is firstly reported Associated Press and then taken by Mashable.
According to them, Google’s self-driving cars use a laser radar on the roof of the vehicle to detect obstacles, pedestrians and other cars. With the help of GPS and a bit of artificial intelligence, the car can drive itself with very little or no intervention from the human sitting inside.
That said, Nevada’s regulations require two people in the test cars: one in the driver’s seat, and other monitoring a computer screen that shows the car’s planned route as well as traffic lights and other potential hazards on the road.
