I'd bet that in order to convince governments to allow these cars on the road that the companies would have had to demonstrate some sort of ability in preset scenarios like that. As much as I'm cynical about politics and politicians, these folks dearly crave re-election and higher offices. So I'd be surprised if they don't cover their butts pretty well before signing off on something self-driving cars. That said, I'm betting the governments have set no standards at this time and are relying on the proponents to do the initial exploration and discovery in this area. But I have a hard time thinking that pedestrian avoidance wouldn't be a fundamental part of any of these systems. That they are all equipped with Lidar and Radar would seem to confirm that.Alan B wrote: ↑Mar 22 2018 1:48pmDo they have a driving test for autonomous vehicle control systems? Seems like there should be standardized testing under development by the government or some independent testing lab franchised by the government that autonomous vehicles would have to pass before being allowed on the road.
