Summarization
Google and Audi recently received permits to test driverless cars in California. This is
very important for the progress of autonomous driving. Electrical industries stationed in
California design parts for driverless cars. This will allow Google and Audi to fix any arising
problems more effectively while testing the prototypes. Google announced its driverless car in
May and are predicting to release it out on the market in five to six years.

Both the engine search and the library databases had there ups and downs. The
search engine was best when it came to finding what was needed. It took mere seconds to find
the proper article after imputing the keywords into the search engine. The library database
took longer because it required to select the proper database. After inserting the keywords it
also requires time to find the relevant article. However, without a doubt the library database is
a more trustworthy source. It has correct references and citations that are clearly shown.
