Ready for the Road

We started designing the world’s first fully self-driving vehicle to transform mobility, making it easier, safer and more enjoyable for everyone to get around. Now we’re ready for the next step of our project: this summer, our prototype vehicles will leave the test track and hit the familiar roads of Mountain View, California, with our safety drivers aboard.

  1. earki zeok bideoa hi

  2. Bunch of old men with no lives…

  3. Wow that great project.

  4. Does it take gas or electricity?

  5. They Took Our Jobs!!!

  6. It would be so cool if u can text ur car to come to this location and pick u up xD

  7. Before we continue this journey, Google will now stop the car and make you watch an advert.

  8. Wait, what are the safety drivers going to do if there’s no steering wheel?

  9. What’s happening now?

    Any knews about it ?

    This video has more than one year…

  10. Kinda dumb

  11. It is 100% ready when you are able to ride on it in India’s challenging tracks. Hope it will come out fast and hope I was among the developmental team

  12. you see that car with no one in it.. its like a gost

  13. What if some funny guy put a metal bucket on lidar?

  14. complete crap

  15. Cool toy, but not a necessity for the average consumer. It’s more a toy for the uber rich. Despite costing over $50k, (more than a cool Porsche), this ugly, slow car isn’t really life altering like a solar charged electric car for exmaple. Most enjoy the freedom of driving their own car. Google Glass was a cooler idea than this and didn’t cost $60k.. This is likely going to fail and be more headaches for Google than it’s worth at the end.

  16. Wowwwwww I LOVE THIS.

  17. I’ve spent my whole life driving for a living, have made a good living at it and met some good people along the way– taking solace in the fact that that’s the one job where humans can’t be replaced… at least until now (apparently).

    Is this really that good of a thing? I drive a classic car, from an era when driving was a hobby, a privilege, something one should enjoy doing. Not a chore that we long to automate… like running clothes in the washing machine. What is happening to our world? The day we no longer own the fine art of driving our own cars, is the day I’m not sure I wish to be alive on this earth anymore. Forget "Big Brother is Coming". Crap! He’s already been here!!! 🙁

  18. Hope google do Learning by doing

  19. Give more Human jobs to robots..Wow..Welfare State at its best

  20. Sadly this would probably work when I"m fifty

  21. these peaces shit for cars don’t belong on the roads not even gulf course . If it’s not on rails it shouldn’t be allowed to exist

  22. when it wil be ready to use worldwide?

  23. Hilarious how everyone here is so accepting of this. Not only is there a freedon issue here but here we have a company who doesn’t respect our privacy online now making cars that will pretty much inhibit adventure seekers and more of our privacy will be taken away. The location of these cars will always be know. Trust that….
    The true path to safer roads is driver assist, more safety.features including mandatory breath alyzer to start the car, programs on phone to prevent people from using them in a moving vehicle and stronger drunk driving laws. In fact no driving after any amount of alcohol. I would rather them outlaw alcohol before making my human controlled car illegal.(that’s coming next people)

  24. why does that project closet?(

  25. I good is it inn highways Google 😐

  26. this car knows cuss the boring drivers?

  27. who is watching this in 2017?!

  28. That thing is fugly. Hope they make future versions look better & a 4 door sedan version would be great. Plus doesn’t look like it would survive a crash much. A big rig or large SUV or pickup would obliterate this thing in a crash. Yeah, self driving cars would help reduce accidents but there will still be other idiot drivers driving normal non self driving cars for a long time. Self driving is a great idea though. Things just need to catch up with the idea.

  29. Honestly, why even buy a self-driving car? What’s the point of owning a car if you aren’t gonna drive it? Use public transportation, or call uber, WHICH COSTS LESS THAN DRIVING A CAR!!!

  30. I really would like to try and drive one, I’m visually impaired, this would work for me and every other blind person in the world

  31. A big question here is what would stop someone from hacking these cars to cause accidents for their own amusement especially when professional hackers are great at working through anti-virus/anti-malware safeguards on computers and servers even over wireless connections? You can’t say it won’t happen because even the fbi,cia,and nsa gets hacked by experts that are exceptional existing in the everyday civilian world from time to time even though they are supposed to have the best of the best security measures. This is a bad!

  32. we need this because humans are too dumb to drive themselves

  33. How does the car know where to drive if you want to drive somewhere is their like a GPS or something like that?

  34. thats just creepy

  35. What about the future of motorcycles?

  36. Never got to see a wheel. What I’d like is a manual thing too.

  37. where the hell are you supposed to park? LOL

  38. Who said we want cars to drive it self ? It another way to take control of our right to drive .
    Nothing is a hundred percent . I prefer to drive my self and will not get in one . If there was a vote on this it would be voted down . We don’t need computer take over our life’s .

  39. 0:44 SUED

  40. I have one question, what is these computer self driven cars were to be hacked. There would be a lot of chaos in the road then.

  41. the thing just crashed

  42. Well where is this project now? It’s been 1 year since the last update…

  43. THANK U GOOGLE FAMILY

  44. I’m all for it, and primarily open-minded, just so long as it’s a "choice" and not a "mandate".

  45. any news?

  46. I saw a ton. They are mostly out at night.

  47. If all cars on the road will be self driving, I am agree, but now definitely not!

  48. Nice but WHY DOES IT HAVE TO LOOK LIKE A POTATO

    pls google

  49. Don’t want to be rude, but they could definitely afford better designers.
