Google patented recognition of school buses

It is clear that the system is not perfect, and as we told the Minister of Transportation, autonomous vehicles, and should be regarded as perfect. They have much less chance of errors compared to anthropogenic factors, but the technology is not yet fully matured.

Last month, one of the Google autonomous vehicles were involved in a minor accident with a bus, and for the first time all the testing accident was caused by an autonomous system, and not a man.

It is clear that the system is not perfect, and as we told the Minister of Transportation, autonomous vehicles, and should be regarded as perfect. They have much less chance of errors compared to anthropogenic factors, but the technology is not yet fully matured.

However, it is curious that after these events, Google was granted a patent titled “Coach detection for autonomous vehicle”Which seems to be even more should reduce the likelihood of errors.

Although the patent was issued just now, it seems that Google originally applied for a few years ago, back in March 2014.

Did the recent events involving the aforementioned car accident affect the patent – is unknown, but whatever it was, patented technology aims to make autonomous vehicles a more careful on the roads with school buses.

The system uses image recognition technology to collect data on vehicles that are close; it determines the size and color of vehicles and performs a number of other steps in order to ascertain whether the means of transport by school buses.
