While self-driving cars aren't exactly common, one does see them around ever since they got the green light last fall. There is always a driver in the driver's seat, but when in self-driving mode, they don't have their hands on the wheel. It seems like I see the Google cars out driving fairly frequently, but this was my first time seeing the Stanford car. It looks much more like a production ready vehicle because it doesn't have the big Street View camera on its roof. I think it is all pretty exciting.
Those of you outside of Silicon Valley may not be quite so used to self-driving cars. If you do, here is a little hint. Don't get into an accident with one. If you do, they have enough sensors and cameras to prove beyond the shadow of a doubt that you were at fault.
