Googles driverless car Sebastian Thrun on

Sebastian Thrun talks about Google’s amazing driverless car — and his very personal quest to save lives and reduce traffic accidents. Jawdropping video shows the DARPA Challenge-winning car motoring through city traffic with no one behind the wheel; dramatic test drive footage from TED2011 demonstrates how fast the thing can really go. (Recorded at TED2011, March 2011, in Long Beach, CA. Duration: 10:41)
