Self-Driving Car Test: Steve Mahan

Self-Driving Car Test: Steve Mahan

We announced our self-driving car project in 2010 to make driving safer, more enjoyable, and more efficient. Having safely completed over 200,000 miles of computer-led driving, we wanted to share one of our favorite moments. Here’s Steve, who joined us for a special drive on a carefully programmed route to experience being behind the wheel in a whole new way. We organized this test as a technical experiment, but we think it’s also a promising look at what autonomous technology may one day deliver if rigorous technology and safety standards can be met.

    Imagine just being able to call one up to bring to home instead of an uber or something, no social interaction nothing just a car.

    Excellent innovation I would like to know more about it I also bet it's probably a lot safer than most of the people that drive today

    Oh, I wish you'd complete this already, and get these on the road!

    SOOOOO many people could be helped by this. Elderly people would regain their ability to travel to the store, hospital, or their grandkids in another state, without fear of causing an accident. The rest of us could drive without fear of being mowed down by elderly, distracted, or incapacitated drivers who won't accept that they shouldn't be driving anymore, and life would get better, and safer, for everyone.

    Those who drive just fine, can still drive just fine, without one of these self driving cars, if they choose, but I don't see the rationale behind trying to stop others who would benefit from this technology, by constantly pooh-poohing it, just because YOU don't need it (Yet). Old age is a bear, and it's coming to ALL of us, so considering the future would behoove us all. I've already given up driving at night, due to vision issues. My father in-law had to stop driving (at 81) because he was physically incapable of controlling the car (for years prior), but not until forced to do so. He literally tagged a guy on the interstate, and just kept on going, because he never even knew it happened. Now his wife drives, and her car looks like it's been in a demolition derby – and lost. Do you Really Want them on the road, instead of this self driving car? I sure don't, and I fear for the lives of the people in their community, every time they leave their house. They are NOT Alone!

    Yes, it would help the blind, and physically handicapped, but it would Help ALL OF US, by giving those who shouldn't be driving anymore, the opportunity to keep their independence, without risking the rest of our lives, because they won't give up their cars. The elderly are the biggest segment of the population, and there are more of us every day. It is insane for anyone to imagine that we're all going to hire drivers to chauffeur us around when we need to run errands. We're going to keep driving, until someone wrestles that key out of our hands. We NEED to, because it's our only option. Give us another option, and we'll be all over it – and it won't cost ANYONE their jobs, since no one is driving us now. I don't take a bus, and neither do my in-laws. There is no bus service here, which is why I have a Car! And I'll be forced to keep on driving, well past the time I should stop, because there is no alternative. GIVE US THE ALTERNATIVE – for YOUR Sake, as well as Ours.

    I don't think it's very practical. There is a ton of human error out there and I doubt if a machine will be able to read every incident the way it should in order to keep people in the car safe.

    I know a guy who is over 50 years old, he says that he will not trust self driving cars until they can go 30 years without a single accedent.
    Let's think about that.
    My father is a good driver, yet he has not gone 30 years without an accident. Nor has his wife, who is also a good driver.
    So two "good drivers" can't go 30 years without at least one accident each.
    Multiply that by the number of people who work at each of the companies that they work for.
    Let's say 20,000 people, who are all good drivers and none of them can go 30 years without an accident.
    That would mean that within that 30 year period there have been 20,000 accidents or a little over 1.8 car accidents every day.
    …and these are good drivers, yet they are on the road with bad drivers.
    So let's imagine that slowly over the next 30 years self driving cars become more and more common and that as 2050 is coming to a close the news reports that there have been a total of 20,000 car accidents involving self-driving cars in the last 30 years.
    Clearly this is proof that self-driving cars are unsafe.

    This is awesome, I can't drive right now because I'm actually legally blind but I can't wait to see what this technology is like in 10 or 20 years

    the major problem with building a society built on self driving cars is probably the hackers, they can easily find ways to hack into any system of cars or a single car and do whatever they want with it, all other adaptions aside, this is still a problem.

    it is cool tho 😀

    This may work well in smaller cities. Nice idea. But I wonder how it would work at 4 way stops and intersections that have multiple roads connecting?
    Good idea, but computers have to be a whole lot more reliable.

    The car is designed to shoot photos for developing google maps/street view thanks to 360 angle camera on top of the car, and is controlled via a computer connection,there is always a driver even not on the driver seat.. This car is not for disabled or drunk people. Keep on driving without alcohol and safely , plus don't trust anybody else when we're talking about your life.

    Ese auto Toyota es una maravilla. yo soy discapacitada no tenia problemas para salir en el mio un auto Citroen XSara año 2O04
    Fue el que pude comprar lo tuve como 2 años, bien yo feliz cuando tuve algunos problemas lo lleve al mecanico y entrego me
    lo entrego malo, con todo el tablero sin funcionar.y murió simplemente no funciona. Lo consulte con un mecanico de CITROEN
    Ni siquiera lo vio por que dijo que la Citroen y las marcas francesas fabricaban auto para una duración solo e 10 años por tanto ya no hay repuestos estoy muy triste por que me es difícil salir a rehabilitación incluso estoy mal por que se me produjo una lesión en mis vertebras que me quedaron pegadas en un accidente que tuve hace 10 años estuve relativamente bien pero ahora con los esfuerzos para mi vida cotidiana por haber quedado sin mi vehiculo , el auto se ve muy bonito, "pero murió"
    Es muy terrible comprar estos vehículos Franceses sin informar la duración de estos. Ahora me es imposible comprar otro vehiculo automatico.
