Driverless car decisions
Find out how autonomous vehicles are learning to safely navigate city streets
Changing lanes is a simple process: check that it’s safe, then mirror, signal, manoeuvre. At least that’s the case for human drivers, as we largely rely on our senses and muscle memory. To perform the same task, a driverless car relies on programming, some degree of artificial intelligence and a myriad of sensor systems making multiple observations of its surroundings. But what exactly does a driverless car have to consider when deciding where to go and how to get there safely?
Driverless cars must be aware of multiple hazards that may move unpredictably
