They've reportedly driven a total of 7 cars over 1,000 miles each without human intervention. "Our automated cars use video cameras, radar sensors, and a laser range finder to 'see' other traffic, as well as detailed maps (which we collect using manually driven vehicles) to navigate the road ahead," the blog post explains. "This is all made possible by Google's data centers, which can process the enormous amounts of information gathered by our cars when mapping their terrain."
