Transcript for First Look Inside Google's Self-Driving Car
Tonightly tonight here, the car that drives itself. No steering wheel. ABC's Neal Karlinsky, simply putting on the seat belt. So, how did it go? Reporter: Here it is. It just pulled up all by itself. At Google's normally secret Google X facility, the future is now. And it comes in the shape of this little round bubble of a car. Google invited us to be among the first outsiders to ride in their prototype self-driving car. A ride like no other. We haven't gone very fast, though, I can't tell you how fast we have gone because there's no speedometer in here. There's no controls at all. We were on a closed course for a four-minute ride, filled with obstacles meant to simulate the real world. This is what the car sees, through a series of cameras, radars and lasers. It identified people, other cars, everything. Apple, Uber and tesla are said to be working on next generation cars. No steering wheel, just two seats and the hum of the electric motor. Feel free to text and drive, or take a nap, for that matter. Not coming soon, exactly, but according to Google, sooner than you think. Neal Karlinsky, ABC news, mountain view, California. Better Neal than us. We hope to see you right back here tomorrow night. In the meantime, have a good evening.
