Zoox Vehicle on Lombard Street And The Digital Sounds They Make [VIDEO]

This Zoox vehicle was spotted on March 11th, 2020 at 5pm PDT on Lombard Street in San Francisco. Note the sound the vehicle emits at the 00:39 second mark to have the pedestrians move out of the way.

An interesting finding is that Zoox vehicles emit a range of sounds to communicate with other road users. Here is a video where we can hear two of these sounds. The first is a spherical sound that is obviously used to announce the presence of the car to a pedestrian, especially in corners that are difficult to see. The second sound was a digital blup-blup, which in this case asks the pedestrians to get off the road.

Equally interesting is the evolving arrangement of the sensors. Here are pictures and videos of past arrangements.

Here is another compilation of Zoox vehicles as spotted within 2 hours in San Francisco on March 11th, 2020.
