We have been posting about Google driverless car from quite a time. If you have landed on our blog for the first time, we would suggest you to go through this link. It will help you to understand how the car works.
The driverless car by Google is an amazing machine. In our past posts we have mentioned that it can pick and drop a passenger from anywhere. One can impose destination limitation and can prevent its misuse. Google has not stopped here and is thinking of introducing even more amazing features in it. Another interesting thing that the robotic chauffeur can do is its ability to perform self diagnosis when any wear and tear occurs in any of its part. Not only this, when there will be less fuel left in the fuel tank, it will have the capability to drive to the nearest gas station on its own.
“Self-driving cars will be far safer than human-driven cars” – Sergey Brin (Google’s co-founder)
According to Google, its driverless cars are actually safer than human drivers. The various units that it carries under its hood like the obstacle detection unit provides great situational awareness to its computer.
In our past post “Google Driverless Car – under the Hood of the Car”, we mentioned about computer, display and map and navigation system of driverless car of Google. We are posting these articles to give you a holistic view of Google driverless car and how it works. Now in this post, we will be explaining about the obstacle detection system of driverless car of Google.
We have been posting continuously about Google’s driverless car project for few weeks. We mentioned about the use of RFID tags in Google’s driverless car and how it prevents its misuse. The driverless car of Google is going to be an epitome of artificial intelligence.
The car is loaded with lot of astounding features. It gets parked automatically, recharge its battery by itself, stops at traffic signals and do many of the other cool things.
In one of our past posts “The Driverless Car of Google Can Pick/Drop You from Anywhere”; we mentioned the use of RFID tags and QR codes in the driverless car of Google.
Are you from California or Nevada? If yes then you may have seen the driverless car of Google roaming around on roads.
It’s fine if you are not from Nevada or California. That doesn’t matter. The functioning of car is still a mystery for you as well as for those who have seen it on road.
