Google Cars Can Detect Cyclists and Road Construction

Posted By on Mon, Apr 28, 2014 at 11:30 AM

The gnomes behind the Self-Driving Google Project released a video updating the Google car's new tricks. In Mountain View, Calif., Google cars drive better than you.

We’ve improved our software so it can detect hundreds of distinct objects simultaneously—pedestrians, buses, a stop sign held up by a crossing guard, or a cyclist making gestures that indicate a possible turn. A self-driving vehicle can pay attention to all of these things in a way that a human physically can’t—and it never gets tired or distracted.
