Google Autonomous Car Fail
For the first time Google admits to bearing some responsibility in a accident involving one of their autonomous company vehicles.
Google self-driving car was involved in an accident with a public bus in Silicon Valley.
Google has admitted to being only partially responsible for the bus to car collision.
Facts about the collision :
- Google autonomous Lexus Suv was attempting drive around some sandbags at a speed of 2mph
- The Bus was traveling at a speed of 15mph
- Google driverless vehicle hit the bus
- The report was filed with California’s Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV).
- The Bus had damages to the the front wheel, left front fender(Fender Bender BIH!) and driver side sensor
- No one was injured in the accident
According to google, the test “driver and vehicle thought the bus would slow down or allow the google vehicle to continue”. (FAIL ALERT)
Allegedly, the car positioned back into the centre of the lane after navigating around the sandbags which ultimately led to the google vehicle striking the side of the bus.
Google said in a statement to CNBC, “In this case, we clearly bear some responsibility, because if our car hadn’t moved there wouldn’t have been a collision,” ( YOUR TEST DRIVERS POOR JUDGEMENT IS THE REASON YOU BEAR RESPONSIBILITY IN THIS COLLISION)
Keep in mind that google cars have been involved in 17 collisions. This is the only one google has admitted to having some responsibility in.( FAIL ALERT)
I would like to know who would really trust a driver less vehicle? Technology just isn’t sophisticated enough for LittMobTV
Google needs to prove to their customers that these vehicles are the safest vehicles in the world. Crash-proofing is what google should be focused on. If autonomous vehicles are able to withstand impact from a pickup truck coming in at 150mph then they have one our trust. Google, trust is key!
