The autonomous self-driving cars are one of the jaw-dropping technologies that Google has ever developed. Waymo is an autonomous car manufacturing company under Google's parent company Alphabet Inc that takes care of the self-driving car project. Waymo initially focused on automating the vehicle that used third party hardware but now started to make its own hardware. Fiat Chrysler is the first minivan to be integrated with the Waymo’s self-driving hardware suite. These cars keep themselves updated with the traffic on the way and at the destination by using Google maps.

Recently, Chinese company LeEco proclaimed to roll out its android smart bikes in the US by the second quarter of this year.The idea of driverless cars sounds economic when considering the wages paid to a driver. But the automatic bicycles sound even better due to their eco-friendliness and energy efficiency. These bicycles are loaded with a handful of sensors to detect traffic and maintain their safety.  They come preinstalled with a Google map by virtue of which you can send a command to the bicycle to come to your location automatically. The stability maintenance system helps the bicycle to adjust its position in such a way that the bicycle stays stable despite the bad condition of the road.
