Google has been looking for a better drivers with clean driving record and no criminal record as well. Yes, you heard it right. GOOGLE NEEDS YOUR HELP!!!!!!
Vehicle safety specialists is what they are looking at to be part of for its self-driving car project. As per the profile, those who are selected will be asked to drive around the unusual vehicle around the state for atleast 6 to 8 hours each day and 5 days per week, data will be collected by Google’s engineering team. Every single driver earns 20$ per hour, as confirmed by the Arizona republic.
“Test drivers play an important role in developing our self-driving technology,” Brian Torcellini, head of operations for Google’s Self-Driving Car testing program, told the paper. “They give our engineers feedback about how our cars are driving and interacting with others on the road, and can take control of the vehicle if needed.” He added that Google has hired people from all walks to life for the role in the past — from school teachers to welders.
“In general, they need to be excellent drivers who pay really close attention to the road and can predict the social aspects of driving,” Torcellini said, according to the report. “Local drivers will be great for testing in the Phoenix area because they know the roads and local driving norms better.” Vehicle safety specialists will also need to be constantly monitoring software systems, provide written and oral feedback, complete daily reports, and be open to travel up to a month at a time. Interested individuals can submit their resume here. The move to expand its team comes after Google in April selected the Phoenix metro area as the next location for its self-driving car testing program. It’s also testing them in Google’s hometown of Mountain View, Calif., as well as Austin, and Washington State.
Meanwhile, those in the UK also have a chance to drive around in autonomous vehicles as part of the £8 million GATEway (Greenwich Automated Transport Environment) project. Project organizers are looking for volunteers willing to ride a driverless shuttle around Greenwich this summer and offer up their thoughts about the experience.
