Google Unveils New Self-Driving Car: Figure 1

Google’s new self-driving car looks like something that might appear on the HBO comedy Silicon Valley or in your backyard if you are the parent of a three-year old.

The car was unveiled yesterday at Re/code’s inaugural Code conference by Google co-founder Sergey Brin.

The two-seated automobile does not have a steering wheel or pedals, is driven entirely by computers and has a maximum speed of 25 miles per hour. It also looks very different from the self-driving car that was making the rounds in the DC area not too long ago.

Brin says that around 100 prototypes will be built over the next two years. While the cars are run and navigated with the help of computers, Google employees currently monitor all the test drives. The company hopes to start rolling out the cars on the street of California this summer.
