How Google self-driving car works?
The cars have sensor designed to it, which senses objects like cyclist, pedestrians, vehicles and even birds. Software processes all the information to the car so that it can drive easily and safely without getting distracted. It also processes map so that it can determine what street and which lane it is in. The Software is made in such a way that if objects pass around, it can predict what the object will do and apply the next step. For example, if a pedestrian is an object, then it will predict that as crossing the road and apply the next step of slowing down for pedestrian to cross.

What’s in a Google self driving car?
Google has developed a prototype wherein it starts with a push of a button. Instead of steering wheel and pedals it has a sensor and software that handles driving. Top of the car has a sensor that includes radar, lasers and camera that will detect objects in all directions. It has rounded shape in the corner of a car that maximizes the sensor view. Back-up systems for steering, braking, computing and more is designed in the tires of a car. Electric batteries are used to power the vehicle.

The car was tested on modified Lexus SUV’s and prototype (developed from scratch as fully self driven) over one million miles. These cars are currently out on the streets of Mountain View, California and Austin, Texas.

Despite, driving is a complex task to master, but easier for the computer to process all things that is happening on the road at a faster pace than human mind. The things which look chaotic and difficult for a human eye can easily be predictable by the computer.

While there are few more challenges for Google to overcome, such as avoiding potholes, construction area etc. Once these challenges are fixed launch of this car will make a great impact in automobile industry.

The New Technologies

  • Pedestrian detection in darkness
  • Animal detection
  • Road edge and barrier detection
  • Vehicle to vehicle communication
  • Self parking
  • Adaptive cruise control with steer assist

Pedestrian and animal detection is the part of Volvo City Safety System, which comes standard in the various models. This system automatically slams on the brakes if it calculates that an accident is imminent, and can completely prevent accidents if the car is moving at less than 19 mph.

Vehicle to vehicle communication is a wide program being developed by a syndicate of automakers in union with government. This technology lets cars warn each other about hazards, even when the driver lacks line of sight view of any pressure. Volvo is developing technology of automatic parallel parking is one of the promises of independent cars.
