Self-Driving Cars Recognizing Things [VIDEOS]

In time for the season there are some arguments being brought up. Specifically, what a self-driving car does when it encounters children inHalloween costumes on the road, and how it would not recognize them. Well, that’s not true as we can see among the following videos.

I’ve done the effort to make a list of videos displaying different driving scenarios, some of which happen on a regular base, some almost never, but still were recorded. Note that self-driving cars, once they encountered a scenario, share this one with all other cars in the fleet. Step-by-step, the fleet becomes better.

Also: I am missing some examples. For instance, one with a self-driving car reacting to a plastic bag on the road. If anyone has such an example and others, please let me know
