Google turned heads two years ago when the Silicon-valley giant unveiled its innovative self-driving car. With recent video surfacing of real-world tests, many believe this “auto-automotive” triumph will transform the way we travel. This revolutionary piece of assistive technology operates on a Google Street View program that infuses artificial intelligence gathered from various sensors and cameras located throughout the vehicle. Perhaps the most fascinating thing about this groundbreaking technology is that researchers have begun to unlock the ability for the vehicle to relay information from the road and surrounding environment to the driver. In this video, Dennis Hong takes his company’s version of the self-driving car technology to the next level by showing how he and his colleagues are not only introducing a vehicle that may give people with visual impairments the opportunity to actually drive themselves.
