#video | Waymo taught its self-driving cars to understand gestures controllers

Skeptics of the idea of self-driving cars are often asked about how the drones will react to unexpected and unusual situations on the road. For example, how will the Autonomous vehicle when the traffic lights at intersections will not work, and instead the regulation of movement will be engaged? The need to teach robomobile to respond to police — one of the reasons why Autonomous vehicles can appear much later than I would like his supporters.

One of the most difficult tasks is to program Autonomous transport so that he could understand the signals of the traffic controller and recognize the many small signals, limiting the movement.

The Company Waymo claims that their drones are capable of a lot of this. In 2016, the company talked about what its cars can understand hand gestures to other road users, the cyclists. To teach the understanding of signals controllers, the company used a similar, but more sophisticated algorithms.

To make their cars safer, the company works closely with police and other city services the us city of Chandler, which tested their drones. The result of the collaboration became the new skills robomobile. The company recently published a video showing how the unmanned vehicle is subject to the signals of the traffic controller, first stopping at the intersection on forbidding signal, and then continues the movement after the appropriate signal.

In Waymo noted that they had trained their cars not only follow the signals of traffic controllers, but also to obey the orders of road guards services. For example, seeing behind a police car with flashing lights, autopilot Waymo able to brake in a safe place. According to handlirsch police drones do the task faster than many drivers.

According to Bloomberg, the mass proliferation of self-driving cars are interested not only manufacturers, but also the police. Both sides hope that this will greatly reduce the number of accidents, most of which are caused by people.

"Drivers are very unpredictable. It is difficult to predict their future actions in a particular situation," — Bloomber quoted the words of one of the police officers of the city of Chandler.

Police even hope that one day they will be able to use in the service of Autonomous transportation.
