Google Drives the Way

Data Shows Google’s Robot Cars Are Smoother, Safer Drivers Than You or I,” written by, Tom Simonite, Google cars are better drivers than how human beings drive. Google cars drive themselves by a satellite that is on top of the car; the satellite drives the car more efficiently and effectively than a human being would. “Data gathered from Google’s self-driving Prius and Lexus cars shows that they are safer and smoother when steering themselves than when a human takes the wheel, according to the leader of Google’s autonomous-car project” (Simonite). Will this be the future? Self-driving cars are in the works, and possibly be used in the future of driving cars. This would be safer for the driver, and the car would have full control; this is going to be safer for the driver, since the car can detect what humans tend to not see, such as from being on their cell phones, and hitting someone, the car would have the capability to keep the driver safe because it knows where and when a car could hit another car.

Google has come a long way into the technologies they have made, and maybe a self-driving car will be in the near future for every person to use to be safe.

    As cool as the technology of a self driving car sounds, I think I’d be too terrified to get into the passenger seat of one.
    Let’s be honest, I don’t even like my boyfriend to drive me. There’s something about letting go of that kind of control that I think a lot of people won’t be able to do, even if the facts prove it is a safer way to drive.
    I don’t text while driving, I don’t play on my iPod, I try to avoid phone calls unless I’m being given directions. While I know there’s nothing I can do to change the way other people drive, I know I can trust what I do, and I don’t think I could ever trust technology that much.
