Google Prepping Driverless Car

Soon Google will be able to send you ads as you drive too. Google is talking to major auto-insurance firms about possibly putting its driverless-car technology into upcoming vehicles, and it announced Wednesday that they had successfully completed more than 200,000 miles of “computer-led driving” and that the response from insurance companies has been positive. “They see the opportunities for this technology being really positive," said the program’s project manager. "From their point of view, this technology is not going to be released until it’s safe.” He also said that he thinks the technology could be available to the general public in less than 10 years.
