Although Google is careful to state that this was a "carefully programmed route," watching the self-driving car zip around with the confidence of an experienced driver is quite something -- it even knows how to navigate a restaurant's drive-through.

We wanted to share one of our favorite moments from some special research we conducted. Watch this video of Steve, who joined us for a drive on a carefully programmed route to experience being behind the wheel in a whole new way. We organized this test as a technical experiment outside of our core research efforts, but we think it's also a promising look at what this kind of technology may one day deliver for society if rigorous technical and safety standards can be met.
