Google's Self-Driving Car Spotted in Georgetown
The Toyota Prius was parked on 30th Street near Citronelle.
A blue Toyota Prius parked on 30th Street in Georgetown isn't really worth a double take.
But if that same Prius is part of a Google's elite self-driving fleet of cars, that's a different story altogether.
The car, tagged with California license plates, is outfitted to use data collected through Google's street view map network, video cameras, a rooftop sensor and artifical intelligence software to navigate. On Wednesday morning, it was parked on 30 Street below M Street near Citronelle.
(Note: This car was only spotted parked on the street. The D.C. Department of Motor Vehicles and Google have not confirmed the legality of a self-driving car in the city.)
