Everyone has heard the hype about the Google driverless cars. However, is it actually possible? Will Google thinks so and has just announced these latest software updates:

  • “More comprehensive and detailed maps to include curbs and different types of traffic signals.”
  • “Improvements in detecting objects around the vehicle – classifying pedestrians and cyclists separately from moving vehicles because they follow different rules of the road.”
  • “The ability to “read” signs as they appear and not just in specific locations – for example, a stop sign unfolding from the side of a school bus.”
  • “Modelling likely situations – Google has developed software that measure the probability of what is likely to happen in thousands of everyday driving situations.”
