Self Driving cars are one of those technologies of the moment. They seem to be everywhere with many big name companies investing in their development.
But how do self driving cars see? Or what technology powers a self-driving car?
Well, in this 360 4k video, Waymo shows some of the technology behind their self-driving cars in a really immersive way.

Self Driving Cars from Waymo
In case you weren’t aware, Waymo is the company that was previously part of Google and has been involved in a high profile lawsuit with Uber over self-driving car technology, and from this video you can understand why Uber would be interested in getting their hands on that technology.
One of the points that I found really interesting was the fact that Waymo’s technology allows it to track objects up to three football fields away. That’s pretty impressive and should certainly help self-driving car technology offer a potentially safer option over human-driven vehicles with human error.
What do you think about self-driving cars?
Would you go for a real drive in a Waymo? Or would you not feel safe enough?
