Google teaches self-driving car to honk


MOUNTAIN VIEW (KRON) – Google’s self-driving technology has a new, noisy feature, according to CNN.

Its self-driving cars can now honk.

Google said its engineers have found a way to program the car’s computer brain. It can now understand which road situations might require a beep of the horn.

The idea is to teach the cars how to honk as if they were patient, seasoned drivers.

Testing has included scenarios like backing out of a blind driveway or heading the wrong way on a one-way street.

Another noise update – Google is designing a “hum” so pedestrians and cyclists can hear the car coming.
