Google’s car has no steering wheel

You must have heard of Google’s self driving car up till now, the cars that drive by themselves, without any need of a driver.
Google has been working on this car from quite some time now, it has already traveled around 700,000 hours since it was first started in 2009.
It’s an all electric car so the only source of energy is the electrical energy and it is already evident that electric cars are the future.
Google’s self driving car runs on with software, sensors and GPS working together in sync with each other, so as the car drives itself the steering wheel or pedals or even an accelerator is not needed and is absent in the new prototype.
Just push a button and the car starts driving, you just need to sit on the car and relax and with all the usual driving stuff missing you can use the driver’s seat as a new seat in the car to sit and relax, maybe you can keep a check on the car, whether the car is driving well or not.

A two-seater prototype car was unveiled by Sergey Brin, Google’s CEO at Recode Code Conference in Palos Verdes, California.

Google is trying to make these cars really safer than human driven cars and guess removing the human driver is a good move in the right direction.
The car generally run around with a speed of 25 miles per hour and Google says it can be seen in the streets somewhere around 2017 to 2020.
So the future looks like, we will not have to learn to drive and roads are likely to become safer.
