Google could help eliminate auto accidents in the future

Many of our California readers are familiar with the inner workings of Google, being as the company is headquartered in their home state. That being said, those across the world are staying current on the technology that the company continues to push to the public.

Google is in the process of creating a car that can negotiate city streets without any driver interaction. In the past, the company focused solely on highway driving, but has recently moved into the city of Mountain View.

This sort of technology could change the world for better, including the ability for it to help drivers avoid an auto accident. With the ability to detect hundreds of objects simultaneously – such as other vehicles, people, and cyclists – this technology is more advanced than even the smartest and most alert driver.

In a recent Google blog post, the company said, "As it turns out, what looks chaotic and random on a city street to the human eye is actually fairly predictable to a computer."

Even though a human driver is required to be behind the wheel in states that allow self-driving vehicles to be on the road, it is still a big step forward on a number of different levels.

Although autonomous driving technology may not be available to the public for many more years, this could help make the roads safer for everybody.

With so many cars on the road, there will never come a time when all auto accidents come to an end. That being said, Google is hoping that its self driving technology will bring an added level of safety and convenience to drivers.
