Developers who try to teach autopilot unusual and critical situations on the road, turned to Boston authorities requesting the test and received approval.
NuTonomy began tests of automatic control system 4 years ago. This winter trials were held in a small area, specially prepared for this kind of testing. Naturally such tests could not provide actual data on the situation on the city road, so it was decided to conduct a larger trial.
This testing should push autopilot with some very difficult trials: the huge number of signs, junctions, bridges, trails and most importantly with cyclists and style of driving are considered the worst in the US.
