Push the button & I’d drive you around
Do what you want to while I drift on the ground!
Why should one die of an accident?
When we can build a technology beyond human judgment!
I come with software, sensors & a technology that doesn’t discriminate
Blind, kids, elderly; I provide them all equal opportunities to freely navigate!
I do not get tired, I do not get drunk, I do not get distracted
Your interests, your comforts & your safety are always protected!
I have eyes reaching far wide & beyond
Till two football fields away I correspond!
I can detect a plastic bag lying over a hundred meters away
Even in complicated city scenarios, I can find my way!
4 questions I constantly ask myself while I tread through territories unknown
To my GPS I ask, “Where am I” and my location with respect to my destination is shown
To my sensors I ask, “What’s around me” and I’m shown if I’m in a danger zone
To my software I ask, “What will happen next” and accurate predictions at me are thrown
To my system I ask, “What should I do” and the seeds of prophesy right there are sown!
My laser fires a millions of photons every second to interpret, process and react
My artificial brain developed cognitive functions envisioning a future perfect!
Been called a koala ball, a nerf car, a cute marshmallow bumper bot; I’m ready for the road
1.2 million miles without an accident to my credibility in the self-driving mode!
No pedals. No instrument panel. No steering wheel; I’m devoid of traditional car tools
I’m a disruptive technology that would require transforming the laws & outstripping the rules!
Speeding, road rage, driver’s license, distracted driving, tickets might all become things of the past
I’m a Google car. Wonder where I would take you if you tell me, “I’m feeling lucky”, oh you enthusiast?
Some figures for an after-thought!
Why this technology would be our jackpot!
Accidents in 2015 cost us $ 503 billion with 1.2 million people killed & 34 million badly injured
What if this could be stopped & what if way out of this could be engineered?
