How Google’s self-driving car sees the world

Tweet by @Bill_Gross:

Google’s Self-Driving Car gathers almost 1 GB per SECOND. Here’s what it “sees” making a left turn.

// Update from Bill Gross:

I learned this weekend at an XPrize event that Google’s self-driving car gathers 750 megabytes of sensor data per SECOND! That is just mind-boggling to me. Here is a picture of what the car “sees” while it is driving and about to make a left turn. It is capturing every single thing that it sees moving - cars, trucks, birds, rolling balls, dropped cigarette butts, and fusing all that together to make its decisions while driving. If it sees a cigarette butt, it knows a person might be creeping out from between cars. If it sees a rolling ball it knows a child might run out from a driveway. I am truly stunned by how impressive an achievement this is. I believe that this is an UNDER-hyped revolution in the making. I am thankful that there is a company like Google that is so audacious as to take on a task like this and advance the state of the art the way it has.
