Self-Driving Google Car Runs into Bus

Since 2014, Google self-driving vehicles have been involved in approximately twelve accidents, mostly when rear-ended. On February 14, a Google self-driving vehicle struck a city bus when it attempted to maneuver around sandbags that were obstructing its lane. The bus, which was to the left of the car, was going approximately 15 miles per hour. Technology Business reported that the autonomous vehicle- a Lexus SUV- was only driving at a speed of two miles per hour. There were no injuries among the bus passengers or the human driver in the Lexus.

New Technology Will Help City Vehicles Avoid Collisions

New York City will be implementing collision avoidance technology in MTA buses in an effort to further the goals of Vision Zero.  The pilot program will allow for 100 city buses to be fitted with the avoidance system which is intended to issue alerts to bus drivers if a pedestrian or other vehicle is in their blind spot.  A safety warning, issued from speakers on the outside of the bus, will also notify pedestrians and vehicles if a bus is making a turn.  Such collision avoidance technology has proven to be instrumental in several other cities across the nation in reducing or eliminating pedestrian fatalities by city vehicles.
