Self Driver's Ed

Putting self-driving car software through its paces.


This program was produced by the Marketing Department of WIRED and Ars in collaboration with CA Technologies.

The promise of self-driving cars is to make them safer—but to get there, they may need to act a bit more human. A 2015 University of Michigan study found that while self-driving cars had higher accident rates than humans, the robots weren’t to blame.

Rather, distracted humans were colliding with diligent driverless cars that followed the law to the letter. It’s a challenge for modern software engineers: Self-driving cars don’t share our bad driving habits, but they have to learn to better share the road.
