According to reports from Consumer Affairs in the past year, largely autonomous car accidents caused by human riders crashed into the back of an autonomous car that is being still or moving slowly. This shows that companies that make software for autonomous cars must be able to ensure the autonomous car drive safely in all conditions.
"The reasons behind this accident are probably due to the autonomous car doesn't drive like a human, " says Phil Koopman, a professor at Carnegie Mellon University and a software engineer who became a consultant to a company that develops car autonomously.
"And if the car is moving, not as autonomous car with human riders, expectations of the human driver will be the vehicle that would be wrong."
The company that makes software for the autonomous car may have to consider the behavior of a human rider on the road so that cars could avoid the autonomous accident such as this in the future. In the future, the number of autonomous cars will continue to rise. However, there is still no regulation governing the existence of autonomous cars. Is not yet known whether autonomous cars could access all the way on the all-weather autonomous car or access will be restricted to a particular area or to a special road lane.
