The Google stated in a post on its Google+ page that they have been working on different prototypes, each designed to test different systems of a self-driving car for example, the typical “car” parts like steering and braking, as well as the “self driving” parts like the computer and sensors. They have now put all those systems together in this fully functional vehicle, their first complete prototype for fully autonomous driving.
