A white Lexus cruised along a road near the Google campus, braking for pedestrians and scooting over in its lane to give bicyclists ample space.Google used machine learning to teach cars how people drive and, from there, to anticipate what motorists in surrounding traffic are likely to do.Naturally, the Google autonomous car was connected to the Internet.Development of the self-driving car began five years ago, part of a special project headed by Google co-founder Sergey Brin.While most people have cars that boast seating for four or more people and that can achieve racing speeds, statistics show that much road time is clocked by solo drivers going closer to 30 miles (48 kilometers) per hour.Prototype Google cars have driven more than 100,000 miles on public roads, always with someone ready to take the wheel.There have been two accidents while cars were on auto-pilot. Brin has publicly stated the even more ambitious goal of having the cars ready less than four years from now.
