Google is going to make its own self-driving cars. With a maximum speed of 25 mph (40 kph), the cartoonish vehicle only has a stop/go button — so it has no steering wheel, accelerator, or brake pedal. Users can chart their progress with a touchscreen. You can see the car in action here.
Perhaps my own prejudices regarding the size of cars prevents me from liking this, or perhaps it is merely a result of watching I, Robot one too many times, but this car is so aesthetically displeasing I fear it may turn off a good deal of the American public to the idea of autonomous cars.
