from PCWorld: Ford Motor Co. wants to use the Google Prediction API to predict driver behavior and use that input to make cars perform better. The Google Prediction API, released last year by Google Labs, is designed for giving an application information about past user actions so it can better predict future behavior.
From the official Google blog: Larry and Sergey founded Google because they wanted to help solve really big problems using technology. And one of the big problems we’re working on today is car safety and efficiency. Our goal is to help prevent traffic accidents, free up people’s time and reduce carbon emissions by fundamentally changing car use.
So they have developed technology for cars that can drive themselves.
Their automated cars use video cameras, radar sensors and a laser range finder to “see” other traffic, as well as detailed maps (which we collect using manually driven vehicles) to navigate the road ahead. This is all made possible by Google’s data centers, which can process the enormous amounts of information gathered by our cars when mapping their terrain.
Check out the video below to see the Google driven car in action around a track. This happened at the TED conference that’s happening this week in Long Beach, California.
