Is Google Planning Driverless Cars?

 

Allegedly, Google is currently trying to get an allowance to use cars without driver in the state of Nevada. The tech giant seems to be planning to conquer the automobile sector.

A spokesperson answered only very vaguely when asked about Google´s plans: "As it stands, the focus of the team is truly on the research aspects of the project."

Google wouldn´t be the first Silicon Valley company to invest in the automobile sector. PayPal´s Elon Musk and Earthlink´s Sky Dayton also invested in innovative cars.

I assume you meant to say, "They´re too late". To which I would respond, Who is too late? Is it Google, the Teamsters or Congress who you´re calling too late? And what are they too late for?

On the subject of congress "allowing" industry to go abroad... when was there ever a law that prohibited US businesses from operating outside the constraints of our borders and who authored the bill that repealed it?

I´ve been to Mexico on several occasions and I´ve never seen or heard of a maytag bar or a heresy bar. What are they, exactly? Are they like a gay bar or a swingers bar? If they´re like the latter, I would be interested in visiting one.

This may seem off topic but, if the illiteracy rate in the U.S. was as low as the unemployment rate in Mexico, there would surely be a lot less people whining about menial labor jobs going to Mexico. After all, people would be so busy working in current and emerging technologies that they wouldn´t have time to worry about the manual labor that´s being done in Mexico.

  It´s already been done.  
 
By Google latest, but by plenty of other engineering/robotics teams from universities. I used to read about DARPA´s annual competition to develop this technology at Tom´s hardware. Years ago.
