New type of car

Google, the American Internet company that many of us use every day, is working on a new invention. It’s a car that doesn’t have brakes, pedals, or even a steering wheel. It just has 2 seats. You get in, tell the car your destination, and off you go. The car has a small tower-like structure on the top that keeps revolving with a radar, added cameras, sensors, and fancy technology. The radar and other equipment in the car figure out what’s in front of the car, what’s behind, and what’s on the sides. The car uses detailed maps and can “see” better than a human being. However, the car isn’t very speedy. The fastest it can go is 25 mph (40 kph).

This isn’t Google’s first car-related invention. Google has attached similar radar and camera equipment to some cars (such as Toyota’s Prius). These cars can self-drive, but they also have a driver behind the wheel in case there is a problem.
