    Google has built a fleet of cars that drive themselves, and over the past several months, these robotic vehicles have driven over 140,000 miles on public roads, from the Pacific Coast Highway to the famous twists and turns of San Francisco's Lombard Street.
    As the company revealed on Saturday morning with a http://googleblog.blogspot.com/2010/10/what-were-driving-at.html, each car is equipped with video cameras, radar sensors, and a laser range finder that alerts the vehicle to other traffic, and they navigate using maps previously collected by cars that were driven by good old fashioned human beings.

    I thought they used those devices attached to the roof of the car for Google Maps purpouses.
