According to a report by The Information and Consumer Affairs, there seems to be an increasing trend for autonomous vehicles to be turned back by human-controlled cars. Carnegie Mellon Software Developer Phil Koopman said it's probably because the self-propelled systems are not driving like human drivers. Waymos vehicles, for example, tend to stop before they turn, cross an intersection or cross at an intersection and make way for pedestrians. Human drivers, especially those who do not always follow traffic rules, tend to get faster if they slow down.
Tech giants and automakers may need to take this into account as self-driving cars must first drive on the same roads with man-driven vehicles. Luckily, no one was injured in the Apple crash on August 24, even though both vehicles were damaged.
