I could still remember the day I watch the i Robot as a teen, and being skeptical about my brother’s statement that one day, the driver less car will become reality. And it’s now a reality, made possible by…………a search engine company Google.
While the data source is still a secret recipe, the Google driver less car is powered by artificial intelligence that utilizes the input from the video cameras inside the car, a sensor on the vehicle’s top, and some radar and position sensors attached to different positions of the car. Sounds like a lot of effort to mimic the human intelligence in a car, but so far the system has successfully driven 1609 kilo meters without human commands!
“You can count on one hand the number of years it will take before ordinary people can experience this.” Google co-founder, Serge Brin said. However, innovation is an achievement, consumerization is the headache, as Google currently face the challenge to forge the system into an affordable gem that every worker with an average salary could benefit from.
