Computers can react faster than humans, and without hesitation. As a result, the widespread rollout of self-driving cars is expected to dramatically mitigate the number of road-traffic related fatalities. However, two recent collisions that took place when automated driving systems were activated have caused some experts to question the robustness of the technology….
‘Minor incidents’ prove a necessary learning curve in self-driving evolution
Investigators are looking into the causes of two recent collisions involving automated vehicles from different OEMs. Michael Nash looks deeper
