Video: Google announces Google Racing, autonomous racing coming to NASCAR


NASCAR and Google have just announced a new racing division based on autonomous vehicle technology.

“Well, our autonomous cars have now been test-driven (or rather, test-ridden) for more than 200,000 miles without a single machine-caused mishap,” Google said in a statement. “And today we’re moving the project one great leap forward with Google Racing, a groundbreaking partnership with NASCAR to help self-driving vehicles compete in the world of stock car racing. We think the most important thing computers can do in the next decade is to drive cars—and that the most important thing Google Racing can do in the next decade is drive them, if possible, more quickly than anyone else. Or anything else.”

This is just amazing! Google is one outstanding company.
