Hello Kirkland, WA! We’ve chosen your beautiful city by Lake Washington as the next location of our self-driving car testing program.

After self-driving 1.4 million miles, we’re ready to give our cars more experience driving new environments, traffic patterns, and road conditions. (And we definitely don't mind the waterfront views either!)

From today, locals may see one of our Lexus RX450h SUVs driving around North Kirkland. We’d love to hear what you think, about how we’re driving, and what you would want to do with a self-driving car! Visit google.com/selfdrivingcar to drop our team a note!

His interviewers were vague about what the job entailed. “Basically they were like, ‘Do you like cars? Do you like technology? Do you want to drive pretty much all day, everyday?’” he says. “I said sure, I’m happy to sign up. They led me to believe that I might be working with the Street View team, but I walk in and see self-driving cars being built. And I’m like, okay, this is awesome.”

"In events where the software has detected a technology “failure” -- i.e. an issue with the autonomous technology that may affect the safe operation of the vehicle -- the SDC will immediately hand over control to the driver; we categorize these as “immediate manual control” disengagements. In these cases, the test driver is given a distinct audio and visual signal, indicating that immediate takeover is required."

"Our test drivers are trained and prepared for these events and the average driver response time of all measurable events was 0.84 seconds."

Typical autonomous vehicle sensors are useless on snow-covered roads, but researchers at U-M and Ford are collaborating on a solution. At Mcity, they’ve conducted the industry’s first tests of autonomous vehicles in wintry conditions.
