Google Using Self-Driving Car Data to Make Cars Smarter

cartechboy (2660665) writes "ne thing Google has perfected — using massive data sets generated from users to improve user experience (think search over time). Google's self-driving cars may be subject to the same cycle of improvement, as they have racked up considerable mileage on public roads, and each mile generates data that Google engineers can use to "teach" vehicle. Meet Pricilla — a Google test driver on the self-driving car project as she does a video walk through of some of the improvements created so far. Some are fairly simplistic, for example: 'The car does move to avoid large obstacles." That said, the car can also detect a bicyclist signaling and stay clear — oddly, even when that cyclist changes his mind and zig zags a little."
