Google has a unique idea for the Waymo.

The technology involves changing the rigidity of the vehicle‘s body, thereby making the car soft before it hits a pedestrian. This is achieved by a series of cables, rods and springs lined in the panel of the vehicle.

Whenever a collision is about to happen, the sensors implanted in the vehicle gets triggered and the rigidity of the vehicle reduces drastically.





The technology definitely re-assures customers and pedestrians of their safety with autonomous vehicles.
