The best way to get your car to work is to use it.
That’s the advice of a former Google engineer who wants to help build self-driven cars.
Matt Blaze, who has spent most of his career at the tech giant and now works for Mountain View College, shared his advice in an interview with The Next Tech, in which he says he built a self built self-drive prototype for himself.
“There are certain things you can do in order to make a self driven car,” he said.
“But the key is to be able to do it yourself.
I’ve been doing that for a long time.”
For Blaze, the self-made self drive idea is an extension of his love of technology and engineering.
He began working at Google in 2001 as a program manager in engineering and design, and left in 2003 after five years.
His first Google job was as an engineering manager, but he wanted to start a startup in 2004, so he started by building a self drive prototype.
Blaze built the prototype for a few months and then drove it around in his garage.
He had to put it in a lot of different locations to make it work.
“It’s hard,” he told The Next Technology.
“I was like, this is way too expensive to do.
I’d need to have a huge, gigantic trailer to do this.”
Blaze was able to build his own self-powered prototype, which he then sent to Mountain View for testing.
Blaze’s idea has been discussed by other engineers who want to build their own self driven cars, but the self drive concept is not new.
“When we started Google, we wanted to build the world’s most powerful cars,” said Matt Blaze in the interview.
“We thought, well, this makes sense.
If it can be done, it’s going to make the world a better place.
And the more that we can do that, the better we’ll be at doing it.
But we didn’t think, well it would be fun.
It would be nice to have this thing where you build it yourself, and you can be super successful and have a great time.”
He also wants to create a better world by helping other people build better cars.
“What I want to do is to create the world where we all have an opportunity to build our own cars,” he explained.
Blaze is hoping to create an industry where all of the cars and cars companies have to build and ship to their customers are self-built.
Blaze wants to make cars that can work together.
For example, he wants to build self driven vehicles that can both drive together and be self-contained.
Blaze also wants cars that have a built-in safety system.
Blaze said his plan is to make all self-travelled cars able to be tested by a human.
“And that’s really cool because now, if something goes wrong, you can say, oh, it was me or it was the human,” he added.
“You don’t have to worry about human error.
That’ll save the lives of hundreds of thousands of people.
It’s the most important thing I can think of right now.
It is an incredibly important thing to do.”
Blaze said he hopes that by the time he is finished with his self-build project, he can create a self controlled car that will go around every corner.
“Self-driving cars are the future,” he concluded.
“They’re the future of transportation.
They’re the next big thing.
And they’re going to be the next thing in the future.”
