In the US, more than 35,000 people die in car accidents every year; 100 million hours are wasted every day on people’s commutes. We can do better. Self-driving cars offer a promise of higher safety, efficiency, and convenience in transportation. At Waymo (formerly Google’s self-driving car project), we’re working to bring self-driving technology to millions of people. In 2015, we took a major step towards that goal: we performed the world’s first fully driverless ride on public roads in an uncontrolled setting. This talk will cover the technology behind fully self-driving cars and how they're able to safely share the roads with pedestrians, cyclists and other road users.

As far as I know, Google has made the most progress in this area at the moment. Their cars are now doing the best job of unmanned driving. A Google Self-Driving Car could drive without a driver a few years ago, and now the technology has gone a long way.

This page will help you to stay up-to-date with the time. On this page, you will get a chance to read about future cars. Recently my boss purchased a car from this webpage. When I saw that car, literally i liked it very much. Because it`s looking like a future car. I am very impressed by the features of that car. Now I decided, I also purchased that type of car in the future.
