According to Tech Crunch, earlier this year Google blogged about eleven “minor accidents” its driverless cars had been involved in over six years of testing. Google laid blame for all eleven incidents at the hands of other human drivers.
Google is now trying to train its cars to drive a “bit more humanistically,” as Google stated.
Autonomous vehicles navigating open roads guided only by algorithmic smarts is certainly an impressive technical achievement. But successfully integrating driverless vehicles into human-motorist dominated roads will be an even more impressive achievement.
Tech Crunch reports that the state of California’s DMV released reports of accidents involving driverless cars in the state. Most of the accidents detailed in the reports occurred at very low speeds.
