Google patents sticky layer technology to protect pedestrians in crash
Google has still not mentioned if it plans to use the same technology on its self-driving cars too
It might be bizarre to read but it is true that Google has patented a sticky layer technology. This layer will be hidden under a protective coating and reduce the injuries caused to the pedestrians in case of an accident.
