Google has began building a self-driving car that will hopefully begin testing later this year.
Google plans to build 100 prototype vehicles which will be tested by drivers with manual controls.
The cars won’t have a steering wheel, accelerator or brake. The software and sensors does all the work for the driver.
The prototypes will have a top speed of only 40km/h for safety whilst testing is undergone.
These vehicles will be battery powered and include safety features such as a flexible windshield and foamlike material covering the front of the car.
