Volvo puts the target on its back. Can the Swedish company deliver?
Self Driving Car
Some of the biggest challenges in preparing self-driving cars for the road have little to do with the vehicles themselves. Worn lane markings, shoddy roads and uneven signage standards make it harder for autonomous cars to figure out where they're headed on many American roads. Poor weather and sunlight at low-angles can also make it hard for cars to discern the path ahead.
Google said Monday one of its self-driving cars bore at least some responsibility for an accident earlier this month that involved a bus in Mountain View, California. The collision represents the first time one of the company's autonomous vehicles has been at least partially responsible for a crash.
