  • Google’s self-driving car finally meets the press!

The bubble shaped tiny autonomous car prototype was showed off to the press on the 29th of September.

Google finally unveiled its self-driving car in front of the international press community. The incident occurred on the 29th of September. Google displayed the autonomous car which has a tiny bubble shaped exterior.  

The press was treated to the first glimpse of the prototype by Google. Google has come a long way. The initiative to develop an autonomous car started in 2009. Back then Google aimed to revolutionize the auto industry. Finally the tech giant has unveiled the prototype of the driverless car. 

According to Google the car will be ready to enter the market by 2020. Suppliers also agree the technology will be complete by the next five years. Chris Urmson is the director of the Google self-driving car project.

Urmson shared with USAToday that the tech giant is taking the project steadily. The technology used in autonomous cars is completely different from Google’s history.

The product has made Google think differently on marketing. But Google is confident they have taken the right steps. Google will keep on setting the bar before letting people use the autonomous car. 

Major rivals also building autonomous cars include General Motors, Volkswagen and Tesla. Urmson believed the new grounds being explored in the auto industry are exciting.

Since a lot of different technology is pouring in the auto industry it will give rise to many opportunities. For Google the goal is to come up with a vehicle that can drive for them. If successful, the cars will be able to help a large number of people.
