Self-driving cars in the streets - level 2

Self-driving cars in the streets - level 2

22-05-2015 07:00

Google announced a year ago that it wanted to build self-driving cars. It said that the cars would not have steering wheels, accelerator pedals or brake pedals. They said that the cars would not need them.

This summer, Google is going to finally test the cars in the streets. However, the cars will still have steering wheels, accelerator pedals and brake pedals. These things are still important. Also, the speed of the cars will be limited to 40 kilometres per hour. People build the cars in Detroit, USA.

Difficult words: announce (to say something officially), steering wheel (the circle in a car which the driver holds), accelerator pedal (the thing on which you step to make your car go faster), brake pedals (the thing on which you step to make a car go slower or to make it stop).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.

Do you think that self-driving cars are the future?
