In some municipalities, self-driving cars are being tested and this has led to an increase in the danger of crossing the street. However, in London, where such testing isn’t always possible, locals have turned self-driving car detection into a game. How (Not) to Get Hit by a Self-Driving Car challenges players to cross a simulated crosswalk without being detected by a person-recognizing camera. The game’s creators aim to make it harder to win by modeling various unpredictable scenarios that could happen in real life, with the goal of training self-driving car systems. While they’re not sure if self-driving companies use similar methods of detecting pedestrians, the anonymous footage collected during the game could still be valuable for research or for engineers to laugh at.
