Google is now in the business of making self driven robotic cars.
They state the program is currently in a prototype phase, but that it plans to build around 100 vehicles for summer deployment. These first roll-outs will include manual controls in case of automation failure.
Google believes it can trim car crashes and fatalities by as much as 90 percent using a technology that can sense and react to things faster than humans.
“The reason I’m super excited about these prototypes is the ability to change the world and the community around you,” Brin said.[SOURCE](http://www.theverge.com/2014/5/27/5756436/this-is-googles-own-self-driving-car)
