The most important praise you could possibly probably give the Google driverless automobile crew is that experiencing their groundbreaking product feels totally unremarkable. Boring, even.
Let me clarify.
This week I, together with a heap of different reporters, was given a experience in two of their driverless automobiles.
The primary was a modified Lexus that has been out on the streets round right here for effectively over a yr now, and is enhancing and studying daily as new eventualities are logged and analysed by the group.
This model, which is probably the most “prepared” for the roads, although nonetheless years off, is actually a traditional automobile. Besides it drives itself.
The second “automotive” (at what level does one thing cease being a automotive?) was extra fascinating, and is a greater reflection of the place Google is in the end going with all this.
