Google Cars Drive Themselves, in Traffic

The car is a project of Google, which has been working in secret but in plain view on vehicles that can drive themselves, using artificial-intelligence software that can sense anything near the car and mimic the decisions made by a human driver.

Robot drivers react faster than humans, have 360-degree perception and do not get distracted, sleepy or intoxicated, the engineers argue. They speak in terms of lives saved and injuries avoided — more than 37,000 people died in car accidents in the United States in 2008. The engineers say the technology could double the capacity of roads by allowing cars to drive more safely while closer together. Because the robot cars would eventually be less likely to crash, they could be built lighter, reducing fuel consumption. But of course, to be truly safer, the cars must be far more reliable than, say, today’s personal computers, which crash on occasion and are frequently infected.

The Google research program using artificial intelligence to revolutionize the automobile is proof that the company’s ambitions reach beyond the search engine business. The program is also a departure from the mainstream of innovation in Silicon Valley, which has veered toward social networks and Hollywood-style digital media.

During a half-hour drive beginning on Google’s campus 35 miles south of San Francisco last Wednesday, a Prius equipped with a variety of sensors and following a route programmed into the GPS navigation system nimbly accelerated in the entrance lane and merged into fast-moving traffic on Highway 101, the freeway through Silicon Valley.

It drove at the speed limit, which it knew because the limit for every road is included in its database, and left the freeway several exits later. The device atop the car produced a detailed map of the environment

Apple posts iOS 4.2 beta for iOS

Apple today released a beta version of iOS 4.2 to developers that adds support for AirPrint, its new name for the wireless printing feature unveiled with iOS 4.2 at the start of the month. The feature finds any printers connected to the local Wi-Fi network and, when supported, prints without needing any special setup. The approach also allows for printing from a printer shared from a Mac or Windows computer.

AirPrint will work with any iOS device that already supports iOS 4 and is still slated to arrive in November.

THE VERY LIGHT CAR

The biggest winner in the Progressive Insurance Automotive X PRIZE competition is not an electric car, but a car that weighs less than 1,000 pounds and is powered by an internal combustion engine. The car is known as the Very Light Car #98, and it won the $5 million prize in the “mainstream” category, which required cars to seat four people, run on four wheels and have a driving range of at least 200 miles. It was built by a team known as Edison 2, led by a German-born entrepreneur named Oliver Kuttner and based in Charlottesville, Va.
