Google Wants to Launch “Robo Taxi” Automated Service

The speculations are that Google is seriously thinking of creating a totally automated taxi service. Media reports claimed that not only was Google developing software for major auto companies, it has been also designing its own self driving car, and thinking of putting together a “robo taxi” fleet.

The rumors in the industry are that the tech giant has been in talks with contract manufacturers to design and build autonomous cars to Google’s own specifications. Historically, the company has talked big about self driving cars and does have the available tech, but was always trying to get the top manufacturers on side.

Despite the rumors that Google is going to sell self driving cars to ordinary people, the tech giant is believed to be seriously considering the premise of an autonomous “robo-taxi” service which will pick up passengers on demand. Undoubtedly, the company would have to find a willing region for its experiment first. The reports reveal that Google hopes it will manage to cut down on individual car ownership and reduce accidents.

It is believed that the company has hopes for a return to the car as a top commodity, and the rumors are that Google has been holding talks with such auto components giant as Continental AG. In addition, the industry observers point out that Google also invested $258 million in a taxi app service, Uber, which allows users get cabs on demand.

If true, the project is really ambitious. Not only would the tech giant have to develop and build a cost effective fleet, it would also have the task to ensure public safety and convince wary customers who might be resistant to the very idea of automated drivers. In addition, the idea in question would see the Internet giant go head to head against the gigantic automotive industry and its formidable lobby. In the meanwhile, Google has reportedly been working behind the scenes for quite some time in order to get people used to the idea. It is said that the company successfully won licensing and testing for autonomous vehicles in several states, including Florida, Nevada and, California, as well as in Washington DC.

CCC avatarThis is not a new concept. My car has been getting me home even when I am drunk and I have no memory of driving.

mickdrift avatarAs long as they don't use Google Maps! You may end up in the desert or the ocean.

No avatarThey will give your travel patterns/records to the NSA autonomously. Eventually, a law will be passed requiring all cars to have their manual controls replaced, or that the car itself be replaced with one of these. After that, you will be taxed by the mile, which is what the GPS and much of this is for. Finally, the computers will eventually not allow anyone to travel on the road without "authorization".

Anybody with two brain cells to rub together knows this is very, very bad for anyone that values freedom.

Embolism avatarAlright building them and restructuring roads to allow for implanted sensors and anything else required to guide them, but never going to be infallible due to fuel requirements, servicing and even simple changing of fuses and blown bulbs which will still require a human being for maintenance.
I don`t think they have considered the class actions they will have coming out their ears when these things break down or run amok due to technical errors.

No avatarGoogle's been letting cars drive themselves across California for years now. Wired and a lot of other news outlets have covered it, but the taxi part is new, but not unexpected.

eNdEmiOn avatarGood news (sarcasm) for all all the cab drivers who will be out of business.
How are they going to achieve "on demand"?
Trains can already be run autonomously but they still require a driver because people don't trust it without one.
Something like this could be interesting but I think it would require it's own set of (possibly much smaller) roads. Don't think it's smart to mix this into regular traffic. Besides robotic actions not always being the best thing to do in non standard situations having it separate also addresses the concerns YoMammaSoFat #3 mentioned.

No avatarThis was proposed between, "They have a car that runs on water.." and "...pass the Cheetos".

Xack avatargood point there #3. And if you have criminal records (wanted), on-board computer/camera will recognize you, will automatically lock the doors and deliver you straight to the authorities.

Embolism avatar@ 10 sarcasm aside they do have a car that runs on water www.bloomberg.com/video/a-car-that-runs-on-air-water-here-s-how-it-works-1AUvv55XQSOzuVdas2S82Q.html
General production of these cars is scheduled for 2017
