When humans are on the road, we can make quick decisions based on what other vehicles are doing around us. Our self-driving software is “trained” to make decisions in a similar way, using obstacle detection and prediction to make decisions as to what to do next.

In today’s video, the Torc self-driving car attempts to get into the left lane, but multiple cars are blocking the space. The Torc car reduces its speed to find a safe gap in traffic to make the lane change. It then detects a red light and comes to a stop.

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.
