Google Self-Driving Car

Video of the Day: Google's Self-Driving Car Goes to Taco Bell

Steve Mahan really wanted to go to Taco Bell, so that's exactly where Google's Self-Driving Car took him. Steve is 95 percent blind, and as this video goes to show, it's people like him that could really benefit from those driverless Priuses that have been getting some buzz. For Steve, simple errands, like picking up a Crunchwrap Supreme or running to the grocery store, are huge tasks, but the self-driving car affords him "independence and flexibility" — and that's pretty amazing.

Google started the project in 2010 to make driving safer, more enjoyable, and more efficient. Self-driving cars have already photographed hundreds of thousands of miles for Google Maps Street View, and now they're even legal in Nevada and California.

The experimental technology plays an important role in helping Google Maps reflect true road conditions, and as you just saw, it could change the lives of many visually impaired and handicapped people. Self-driving cars still need to pass rigorous technical and safety tests before they can hit the market, but until then, we'll be watching this video on loop.
