The Google Car

The auto industry as we know it is about to be joined by a couple of new players, though you already know their names and products well. Apple and Google are rapidly pursuing the automotive market both as technology providers and, perhaps, as carmakers themselves.

Of the two, Google is much further down the road, with several generations of autonomous cars already in testing. The company’s vehicles have charted more than 1.5 million miles of computer-controlled driving. They’re currently logging between 10,000 and 15,000 miles of autonomous vehicle testing per week on public streets.

Might you have a Google Car in your driveway in the coming years? Check out the slide show to see how Google’s working toward that goal.
