This Self-driving Car Drives Better Than You


Remember years ago when the first self-driving car competitions came out, and we all imagined  we would live the rest of our lives like Will Smith in I, Robot – riding carefree in some futuristic car that gracefully zigged in and out of traffic automagically?  Well we are still a ways away from that reality but Google has made some great progress in the time being.  A recent article on The Atlantic Cities website provides an in-depth look at that progress, and it’s pretty exciting.  Current estimates are still at the years 2020-2030 for the first consumer self-driving cars but this article is a promising glimpse into the future.

Of course, having the technology doesn’t mean we would use it – would you trust a self-driving car?
