Google's self-driving car just set itself apart from the rest of competitors in the autonomous car field. Developers have now made the car capable of reading the hand signals of cyclists on and can adjust accordingly while navigating the road. This has the potential to save the lives of thousands of cyclists who are hurt or killed in cyclist-auto accidents every year.
The sensors on the car work to map where the car is and to navigate the streets. The software makes the car capable of adjusting to the factors around the car is it drives. The research and development behind all of this innovative autonomous driving technology began in 2009, and these are the spectacular results.
This development for Google's self-driving could inspire competitors to follow suit.
