Driverless cars are hitting the roads in cities all over the world, but just how much do you know about how they see and evaluate the world? And if you knew more would you feel more confident about being a passenger in one?
Let’s flip back in time to this TEDX video reel from 2015 Chris Urmson, who up until recently, headed up Google’s driverless car program – one of several efforts to remove humans from the driver’s seat.
In this talk Chris shares fascinating footage that shows how driverless cars see the road and make autonomous decisions about what to do next. Needless to say the complexity of it all might not surprise you but many of the outstanding challenges are being overcome and overcome quickly.
