NYT tests Google's autonomous Toyota Prius
If you haven't heard about Google's secret driverless car program by now, you must have taken quite a nap. The Internet giant has been out on the roads with cars that can handle their own business in traffic, racking up 140,000 miles of testing.
To prove the concept, Google even took a 1,000 mile trip with no human input--though one is always behind the wheel, just in case. For a full take on the project, including how it uses all kinds of high-tech including lidar, check out our sister site TheCarConnection's coverage.
Below is a video of the car cruising down the freeway. It doesn't do much, but then, it really shouldn't at that speed.
