How is this car expected to operate?
The car would be summoned with a smartphone application. It would pick up a passenger and automatically drive to a destination selected on a smartphone app without any human intervention.
The point of a human being in the driver less car would be to take over in case of an accident or emergency. Doesn’t this take away from the whole purpose of being a driver less car. Christopher Urmson, robotist that works with the Google project says, ” The front of the car will be made from a foam like material in case the computer fails and it hits a pedestrian.”
