Hyundai passes the test as the first self-driving car

Hyundai believes that it is so far ahead with the self-driving technology that it was put to the test. A choir rehearsal.

In the US state, a self-driving Hyundai Ioniq 5 has passed a road test.

In the passenger seat sat a motoring expert with a frightening statistic. Motoring expert Kandice Jones has 25 years of experience with road tests.

And in that time, she has allowed a total of only 16 percent of future drivers to pass a choir test. But the Hyundai did so well, according to her, that the choir card would have been in the house in the first go.

– I have dumped thousands and thousands of new drivers for the sake of the public. It's about safety, says Jones.

She immediately explained to the staged choir rehearsal that she wanted to keep an eye on exactly the same things that she notes when there is a person behind the wheel.

– "I keep an eye on the speed and lane changes. I judge maneuvers – such as a full stop, left turn, whether the road is being followed, and then, of course, reaction time."

And in the end, the Hyundai passed. However, this means nothing, since no car can get a registration card on its own. Still…

However, the trees do not grow into the sky. Not even when it comes to self-driving cars. In California, for example, the state government has banned self-driving taxis after several accidents.

The ban came about only shortly after the robot taxis from the General Motors-owned Cruise were otherwise allowed to drive around the dock all week. Read more about it here.
