Google's self-driving car gathers almost 1 GB of data every second

quote:

I learned this weekend at an XPrize event that Google's self-driving car gathers 750 megabytes of sensor data per SECOND! That is just mind-boggling to me. Here is a picture of what the car "sees" while it is driving and about to make a left turn. It is capturing every single thing that it sees moving - cars, trucks, birds, rolling balls, dropped cigarette butts, and fusing all that together to make its decisions while driving. If it sees a cigarette butt, it knows a person might be creeping out from between cars. If it sees a rolling ball it knows a child might run out from a driveway. I am truly stunned by how impressive an achievement this is.

How does it know when to pull up to the window at the drive thru after the order is taken?

Please don't tell me it is actually listening to the verbal exchange taking place. If so...

Makes you appreciate our own brain even more. I'd love to see numbers on how much data we take in and interpret and store.

It would probably start out as an expensive optional package, but it would likely pay for itself over the life of the car in lower insurance premiums, fuel consumption, maintenance, etc.

I wonder how hard "law enforcement" will secretly lobby against this, considering the number of speeding and red light tickets will surely drop.

A bigger question will be: Once, smart cars are 99.999999% reliable, why even have a speed limit?

Yeah. Imagine how beautifully choreographed intersections will be. No lights, just cars weaving through one another, because they are all talking to each other and know where they are going.

I agree, hopefully they won't have "aggressive" or "passive" mode switches.

I look forward to watching movies, drinking alcohol, napping etc during long road trips...

Also, these could kill the highway hotel/motel business.

It really is fascinating to think about where we could be in 20 years.
