Self-driving cars are no longer a thing of the distant future, and Google has been one of the companies developing them. Google first began working on autonomous car technology as far back as 2010 and unveiled a prototype of the self-driving car earlier in 2014, but this new prototype features a number of new specifications. The new iteration is fitted with a remodeled rooftop sensor module and fresh indicators and headlights, in addition to a more subdued gray paint job.

Like the earlier self-driving cars, this vehicle features mapping systems and sensor technology that allows the car to 'see' what's going on around it.

If you're excited by this car, you may need to temper your excitement for a while longer as Google has wisely taken a safety-first approach and intends to continue testing the vehicles for the foreseeable future.
