Google’s self-driving cars are finally ready for their road trip.
Google says the prototype cars will travel at a maximum speed of 25 miles per hour and feature safety drivers that can take control of the car if necessary.
“We’re looking forward to learning how the community perceives and interacts with the vehicles, and to uncovering challenges that are unique to a fully self-driving vehicle—e.g., where it should stop if it can’t stop at its exact destination due to construction or congestion,” says Chris Urmson, director of Google’s self-driving project.
The self-driving cars have been tested in California and Nevada. Earlier this week, Google confirmed its cars were involved in 11 accidents over a six-year period, but described them as minor.
