Google has been diligently working on the robotic cars front. The company has extensively tested its self-driving cars and has not only gathered the analysis of their performances but has also shared it publicly. Now, Google’s cofounder Sergey Brin has claimed that his company will make the self-driving cars available publicly within the next 5 years.


Google Cars

The notion of a self-driving car is definitely very enticing. Imagine letting the car drive on its own while you read a book, talk to a friend on your smartphone or complete that last-minute assignment on a tablet. The possibilities are endless.

The only problem with such a car, in the past, was that it wasn’t safe enough. Google has significantly improved that by putting in sufficient sensors and hardware to make its smart cars intelligent enough. This is manifest in the 300,000 miles of testing that these cars have gone through without any accidents or other kinds of trouble.

California has now passed a law which provides safety and performance standards for a self-driving car. On the occasion of signing the bill, Brin said that, “You can count on one hand the number of years it will take before ordinary people can experience this.”

In other words, it would take Google at most five years to roll out such cars for commercial use. We can rest assured that the cars would be quite expensive initially but then, once other vendors jump the ship, the costs are bound to come down. Brin said that his company is focusing on providing support for hardware failures in self-driving cars, trying to envision and pre-emptively solve as many scenarios as possible.
