What is it about self-driving cars that makes people nervous? Is it the lack of control? Is it the possibility of a car accident? Or is it the fear that we a replacing humans with machines? The conversation about self-driving cars can either be an exciting conversation of what the future may look like, or a heated debate about the safety concerns of a machine operated vehicle. Whatever side of the debate you are on, self-driving cars are a very interesting concept. If you think that you can take your hour commute to work and make it a time to check email or read a book, this could be a far more productive time period. With the first prototype of the Google self driving car, it is time that we take a detailed look at the future of the self-driving car.

A driverless car is a part of the Google empire. It is a car that drives itself. The programming and software behind the vehicles is labeled Google Chauffeur. The new technology is headed by the co-founder of Google Street View, Sebastian Thrun. The technology first appeared on the scene in 2005 at the DARPA Grand Challenge, where it won and later the technology received $2 million as a prize from the U.S Department of Defence. These autonomous cars are being tested in five states across the U.S. The first state to pass a law permitting the use of this vehicle, was Nevada back in 2011. Michigan followed suite in December of 2013. The Michigan law however, demands a human must remain in the drivers seat at all times while the vehicle is operational.
