Automated cars from Google will be available for public testing in the next year, according to the technology giant.
The two-seat electric vehicle may take some getting used to for operators. There are no pedals or a steering wheel in the new car. Sensors are able to detect obstacles up to 600 feet away from the automobile. Test versions also have a top speed of 25 miles an hour. That limit was imposed on the engine to keep pedestrians safe.
Google and Microsoft have been competing for several years, attempting to produce the first fully-functional automated automobiles. This latest design is the first model Google has designed as an automated vehicle from the start. Earlier prototypes focused on retrofitting traditional electric cars for computer control.
