Google says autonomous vehicles will eliminate human error.
Autonomous vehicle developers are testing self-driving cars on public streets, but don’t expect to buy your own just yet.
Google says that cars it is programming to drive themselves have started to master the navigation of city streets and the challenges they bring, from jaywalkers to weaving bicyclists — a critical milestone for any commercially available self-driving car technology.
In some ways, computers make ideal drivers: They don’t drink and then climb behind the wheel.
Proponents of self-driving cars say the roads will be much safer once the cars are available. But, some are worried that the threats of lawsuits could put the brakes on their introduction.
