As part of its self-driving car project, Google has announced plans to move prototype autonomous vehicles from its test center to city streets.
Revealed on Friday, the Mountain View, CA.-based firm said it is ready to take the next step in readying its autonomous cars for city driving. In summer, Google plans to send a few of their prototypes from test tracks to nearby road systems with safety drivers aboard.
Google's self-driving cars have been in development for several years. The new prototypes are based on Google's original fleet of self-driving Lexus RX450h SUVs, which have logged nearly a million miles during testing and have recently begun driving themselves for roughly 10,000 miles each week.
