Here’s why self-driving cars may never really be self-driving

It sounds like the beginning of a bar room joke.

Two self-driving cars are headed down the highway when the lead car decides to  speed up to avoid being rear-ended by the second. That car, in turn, slows down to avoid hitting the first. Then a third car suddenly comes between the two, prompting  the slower car to change lanes to avoid and accident.

The problem: There are cars in the lanes on either side of it.

What’s an autonomous car to do? The answer is no joke. [1]
