偷窥下谷歌小车内部 Take a look inside Google’s little cute car

圆润可爱、长着大眼睛的Google无人驾驶汽车已经上路测试了一年多时间,我们也经常在网上看见他们的样子,但是关于它的内部结构,我们却了解得不多。

前几日,Google终于开始公开展示他们设计的无人驾驶汽车了,美国山景城的同学们可以就近一窥究竟,而对于我们远在他国的人来说,就看看图片过过瘾吧。

在这些图片中,我们可以看到车里面的乘客区可谓异常宽敞,没有方向盘,从内部来看有一种矮胖敦实的美感。

正如《华盛顿邮报》的Matt McFarland指出的那样,Google无人车的设计是实用性大于时尚感的。座位看起来是塑料材质的,汽车前部的储物柜看起来就像是一个桶。当然因为还是早期的原型机,我们还看不到华丽的皮革装饰和靓丽的仪表盘,相信在实现商业化之前,这款车的内部设计还会迎来比较大的修改。

在目前的测试阶段,当地法律规定Google的无人驾驶车在进行上路测试时,必须带有一个可以人工控制方向的设备(操作杆)。但在Google的展示车型中,这个设备被移除了,所以很遗憾没能看到。

当然,这款车最引人瞩目的设计就是其中宽敞的空间,坐在其中,你可以毫无压力地舒展你的双腿。和Google之前的改良自雷克萨斯的一款混合动力车的无人驾驶汽车原型机不同,这款甲虫一样的小车上带有更多的新科技和新设计,能让乘客的旅途更加舒适惬意。

Google showed off the prototype of its self-driving car on Saturday at theCommunity School of Music and Arts in Mountain View, Calif. We first saw the vehicles in May, and Google began testing the prototypes on roads near its headquarters in June. Since then we haven’t yet seen public images of what the inside of the test vehicles looks like. A few people in attendance took photos through a window, and were kind enough to share them with me.

In the May announcement, Chris Urmson, director of the Google self-driving car project, said the prototypes would include a removable steering wheel, accelerator pedal and brake pedal. Now we get to see what that looks like. You’ll notice the big red button in the car. (I think we all know what that’s for.)

Of course, this is just a prototype. So the final version of a self-driving car could look significantly different. But it’s interesting to see inside Google’s current vision.

Saturday’s event was part of Google’s Paint the Town project, in which California artists are encouraged to submit artwork to be featured on the vehicles. Google is clearly dedicated to making sure the cars appear harmless and friendly, so as not to sabotage adoption of the new technology.
