Google Wants to Bring Self-Driving Car Systems to Market Within Next Decade

If not, Google rep says, "shame on us engineers."

According to the Wall Street Journal blog "Driver’s Seat," Google is searching for partners to help bring its self-driving car systems and software to market within the next decade.

The challenges are many, including developing the software itself and the cost and reliability of sensors to detect hazards around vehicles, but still Anthony Levandowski of Google told Driver’s Seat that a system could be ready "much sooner than the next decade. If not, shame on us engineers."

Google admitted in the blog that millions of miles of testing needs to be done before the systems go to the market. 

When asked about the possibility of being liable if such a system should malfunction, Levandowski told Driver’s Seat that issue still needs to be ironed out.

“We’re going to stand behind our software,” he told Driver’s Seat.
