Self-propelled car Google drive more carefully near children




Google claims to have learned his self-driving cars they should behave differently in the vicinity of children. The Internet giant conducts training to recognize children in “all shapes and sizes,” and to change the behavior of the car on to that.

That let the company know in a post which is placed on the social network Google+. As part of Halloween left the Internet giant children in various costumes along the autonomous car of Google run while it was parked. This makes learning the system through its sensors and recognize the true children in all kinds of ‘form’. This should ensure that the car is better at noticing children in traffic.

Google has built a separate detection system for children, because they exhibit more risky behavior in traffic situations than adult pedestrians. Because the behavior of children in the car more difficult to predict, it is driven more caution.

The Internet giant has long been engaged in testing its autonomous car. The company states that, following more than a million kilometers on the road has not been involved in accidents where the car itself was to blame.
