Google Self-Driving Car


In 2009, Google started the self-driving car project, including team members who had already dedicated years to the technology. Nowadays, Google has self-driven over 1 million miles and are currently out on the streets of Mountain View, CA, Austin, TX and Kirkland, WA. Their testing fleet includes both modified Lexus SUVs and new prototype vehicles that are designed from the ground up to be fully self-driving. There are safety drivers aboard all vehicles for now.

As part of a community involvement project, Google set up a ‘Paint the Town’ art experiment. Local artists were invited to present artwork based on the theme “my community, my neighbors,” and various pieces of art were selected to be featured on our prototype vehicles in Mountain View, California and Austin, Texas.
