Google's been working on its fleet of self-driving cars for a while now, so you'd expect it to be pretty advanced. I just didn't expect it to be this advanced. It handles basically anything thrown in its path, including indecisive cyclists. Those jerks.

It's crazy to realize how many situations we encounter on a daily basis, just driving your own car, that would trip up a computer, including trucks parked out in the middle of the street and railroad crossings.


The self-driving car's computers spot cones, pedestrians crossing all willy-nilly, and the aforementioned cyclists and registers them in its "robo-brain," tracking them as they move, and only allowing the car to proceed once the path is completely clear.

Which is more than you can say for most people, with their "people-brains."
