‘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

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….
