    Google s New SelfDriving Car Doesn t Have A Steering Wheel or
    Gear  |  Tech  


    Google just unveiled its latest autonomous car, it doesn't have a steering wheel, accelerator pedal, or brake pedal...With a top speed of 25 MPH, buttons for start and stop, and a screen that shows the route.
    "We’re now exploring what fully self-driving vehicles would look like by building some prototypes; they’ll be designed to operate safely and autonomously without requiring human intervention. They won’t have a steering wheel, accelerator pedal, or brake pedal… because they don’t need them. Our software and sensors do all the work. The vehicles will be very basic—we want to learn from them and adapt them as quickly as possible—but they will take you where you want to go at the push of a button. And that's an important step toward improving road safety and transforming mobility for millions of people. "
