Google is Granted a Driverless Car Patent [techradar.com]
Google has been granted a patent for driverless car technology, which can fully take over the control of a vehicle from a human driver.

This full-fat version of cruise control uses web functionality to trigger the automated driving tech, with one of the images which goes alongside the patent showcasing what seems to be a massive QR code embedded into a road.

It seems that once a driver of one of Google's automatic cars drives over the QR code or reference indicator, as it is called in the patent the car then takes over the controls.

That'll make for some interesting graffiti related pranks!

And give rise to party vans. "Honest, officer, I wasn't driving!"
