The sensors and controllers were created in collaboration with Google and it takes 2-3 days to make it.
The first cars that made it are going to be put down in the field today. We’re still working on this and will put up a press release tomorrow if the announcement is ready.

In the future, this technology can be put to other uses in the future. A vehicle owner might have it available to make the next-generation autonomous vehicle safe and efficient and then use that in the future in a taxi, or driverless car.
If the company starts going up to 5 cars per hour, their average distance to the end of the loop will decrease. The new cars are only programmed to run at 35-40 miles per hour during their last leg. The real benefit is that this will reduce the number of hours per week that you spend waiting at the terminal to get to and back from your car.
The company has been testing for more than a year, and is still working on a few things. Most of the things will be public and accessible, meaning that it comes as no surprise that you’ll need to register for access. The company has hired a couple of people from the robotics community in order to help with business development, but it is hard to tell how much they have access to.
