Google's Self-Driving Cars Log 300,000 Crash-Free Miles

Time to get started on teleporters, guys.


In 2010, Google vice president Sebastian Thrun announced the company's self-driving cars successfully logged 140,000 miles without incident.

At the time, the idea of an automated car was shocking.

Now, Google has reached another milestone: The cars have driven more than 300,000 miles without a single accident while under computer control. A car once was rear-ended while at a traffic light as the result of human error.
