Google’s self-driving cars will be tested on public roads in California this summer

Google’s self-driving cars have been given the green light to venture out onto public roads in Mountain View, California this summer.

Project Director Chris Urmson wrote in a company blog post that the prototype vehicles will have safety drivers present and will have a capped speed of 25mph.

Google says its self-driving cars have already logged close to one million miles on the road and will be running the same software as the self-driving Lexus RX450h fleet.

Earlier this week, it came to the fore that Google’s self-driving cars had been in eleven accidents but were not the sole cause of any.
