Still pointless after all these miles.. What incident from earlier this week had folks thinking our Computer Overlords were capable of making a mistake?

    These pictures were taken by a blog Jalopnik stating that a Google Street View Prius car has rear ended another Prius. Quoting from the blog —

    “Perhaps the complicated set of lasers and imaging systems that Google chief autonomous car researcher Sebastian Thrun called ‘the perfect driving mechanism’ thought it was just looking at its shadow”

    But the last laugh is on humans, not the autonomous cars. A Google spokesperson told that a person was actually driving the car in manual mode when the minor collision happened earlier this week.

  27. The automatic car which is being developed by Google engineers, after it got into a crash. Hilariously, the crash was caused when a human driver was at the wheels :D
