Human Drivers, The Biggest Challenge Facing Self Driving Cars’ Developers

In just a few years, well-mannered self-driving robotaxis will share the roads with reckless, law-breaking human drivers.

The prospect is causing migraines for the people developing the robotaxis.

A self-driving car would be programmed to drive at the speed limit.

Self-driving cars wouldn’t dare cross a double yellow line; humans do it all the time.

And then there are those odd local traffic customs to which humans quicklyadapt.

In Los Angeles and other places, for instance, there’s the ‘California Stop,’ where drivers roll through stop signs if no traffic is crossing.

‘It’s hard to program in human stupidity or someone who really tries to game the technology,’ says John Hanson, spokesman for Toyota’s autonomous car unit.
