SHOCK! Robot cars do CRASH. Because other cars have human drivers

Re: One question

The answer is obvious. The computer will know the size of the object and whether it can pass under the vehicle safely or not and will adjust it's path to avoid the object if at all possible. If it is not possible then it will run over the object. Should there be a significant impact, the car will alert nearby vehicles to give them more chance to avoid the object.
