Is there room for bikes and self-driving cars?

In January, Renault-Nissan chief executive Carlos Ghosn told CNBC his company’s first partly autonomous vehicles would come out this year with fully self-driving cars by 2020. But they are not yet ready for prime time, he said.”One of the biggest problems is people with bicycles,” according to an article on the business news network’s website.Rest assured, Toyota with a roll-out planned, has developed a whole new kind of crash test dummy – a puzzle-like figure of a bicyclist and cyclist after it’s struck by a car can be put back together again for more tests. If they get it right, however, the crash protection systems on autonomous cars could end up being safer for everyone, including cyclists and pedestrians – because, as the Guardian reported: “The most dangerous component on the car – the loose nut behind the steering wheel – could soon be eradicated.”
