Video: Watch an Autonomous Car Prevent a Traffic Jam

Work set up an experiment with an autonomous vehicle whose software applied brakes in a way that reduced the number of times a human driver behind it would have to hit their brakes. The resulting shift in the humans’ driving patterns- which were being controlled by the car’s AI- reduced the number of times that drivers applied their brakes from 9 times per kilometer to less than 2.5. Fuel consumption was effectively reduced by 40%, too, as cars’ gasoline did the work of moving the vehicle instead of idling an engine to run an air conditioner.
