Google's Driverless Cars

Postby akirk » Tue Sep 29, 2015 12:06 pm

Apparently Google are planning to make their driverless cars more like humans:

- cutting corners
- edging forward into junctions
this is because their cautious nature was seen as a potential factor in causing accidents...

so what do we think? will it get tanked on a Friday evening and have an argument with another driverless car? :D

How can it pass a UK driving test if it cuts corners? Indeed, is it even required to pass a UK driving test? Perhaps it should be.

Running red lights and ignoring 30 limits next...?

Steaming onto roundabouts in a game of "roundabout chicken".
Overtaking on blind bends.
Reversing back past the junction it just missed on the motorway...

You've forgotten the other danger sport: pulling out in front of Audis and not accelerating until you see the nose of the Audi dip under braking.

Whatever happened to anti-dive suspension? Did that go out of fashion?
