Google’s new prototypes of its autonomous vehicles have hit the road in Mountain View, Calif. The latest prototypes are designed to be fully self-driving, working without a steering wheel or pedals. During the testing process, safety drivers will be on board and will have the ability to take control of the car if needed.
In addition, the prototypes’ speed is limited at 25mph, and they use the same software as Google’s existing Lexus cars.
