It’s summertime, so millions of Americans are packing up the car and hitting the road—and so are we! We’ve chosen Austin, Texas, as a new testing location for our project, and one of our Lexus SUVs is there now, with safety drivers aboard, driving a few square miles north and northeast of downtown Austin. It’s important for us to get experience testing our software in different driving environments, traffic patterns and road conditions—so we’re ready to take on Austin’s pedicabs, pickup trucks, and everything in between. Keep it weird for us, Austin, and visit our website to let us know how we’re driving.

E36 in background is all "C'mon slowpoke, let's go!" :P
Notice anything new on the streets of Mountain View, California? Our latest prototype vehicles are ready for the road and a few of them are now cruising around town! 

These prototype vehicles are designed from the ground up to be fully self-driving. They’re ultimately designed to work without a steering wheel or pedals, but during this phase of our project we’ll have safety drivers aboard with a removable steering wheel, accelerator pedal, and brake pedal that allow them to take over driving if needed. The prototypes’ speed is capped at a neighborhood-friendly 25mph, and they’ll drive using the same software that our existing Lexus vehicles use—the same fleet that has self-driven over 1 million miles since we started the project. 

As we start to cruise around the neighborhood, we really want to hear what our neighbors think. To learn more about our project or to leave feedback on how we’re driving, please visit our website: www.google.com/selfdrivingcar.

See you on the road!

Moving away from "swoopy" - Green car is from 2013, black car is from earlier this year. Emphasis is on lightweight and making power. The thousands of hours spent on complex compound curves to gain tiny fraction in drag reduction not worth it (solar car folks take note!)

But will it have a traditional, three-pedal, stick shift, manual transmission?...
