In the growing automobile technology engineers create new miracles. The first self-driving car that doesn’t need a driver has hit the streets. A car maker has testing a self-driving car in Pittsburgh, Main branch of the company’s nascent Advanced Technologies Center.
A Ford Fusion Hybrid car with a roof-full of radar, lasers and cameras, will be collecting road-mapping data and testing its in crowed area.
Car maker interest in autonomous car technology dates before one year, when the $60 billion start-up began hiring Carnegie Mellon University robotics experts to new employees.
Self-driving cars are approved for testing on road, Self-drive vehicle will have a safety driver who can take over the controls depend on situation.
If you’re driving around Pittsburgh in the coming time you might see a strange sight: a car that looks like it should be showing as a magical, superhero. While company is still in the early days of our self-driving efforts, every day of testing leads to change and improvements. Currently focused on getting the technology right and ensuring it’s safe for everyone on the crowded road.
The post also notes that self-driving echoes, which is to reduce the number of traffic fatalities that are largely caused by human mistake. Last year, 30,000 people died in the U.S. in car accidents and 4.2 million were injured, according to the National Safety Council.
But self-driving tech has a financial appeal for better to car maker. CEO Travis Kalanick has made reference on a number of occasions to the fact that the driver is the most expensive part of its financially, the source of an ongoing fight over whether such drivers. Car maker agreed to pay $100 million to settle a lawsuit over driver status.
“When there’s no person in the car, the cost of a car taking cheaper than owning a vehicle. So the magical there is available easily, you basically bring the cost of ownership for everybody, and then car ownership available.
Google has been testing self-driving car technology few years ago, using Lexus SUV’s strapped with technology.
Google currently is road testing in hill station and Mountain View, Calif, Phoenix, Kirkland, Wash., and Austin. The car maker plans to accelerate its testing through a partnership with Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, which will build 100 Pacifica minivans magical creation that can accommodate Google’s technology.
