Day 3 Capability: Reduce Speed for a Merging Vehicle

on November 8, 2017

Traffic can be unpredictable, and our self-driving system needs to be able to react quickly and safely to a wide variety of traffic scenarios. In this video, a slower car moves in front of the Torc car as we are exiting the highway. Our self-driving system quickly reduces speed from 71mph to 56mph and changes lanes to create a safe distance between ourselves and the other car.

We’re showcasing the capabilities of our autonomous car system on real public roads with real scenarios the car has encountered. To get updates on the latest videos, check back on our blog or subscribe to our YouTube channel.
