Waymo video shows its self-driving car letting bicyclists pass

One of Waymo’s latest videos shows how the self-driving car reacts when it detects bicycles nearby. The video is split between what the camera on the Waymo self-driving car has recording — and the sensor data which breaks objects including cars and bicycles into different objects on its screen.

Waymo says that its “…cars are designed to anticipate how other cars, cyclists, and pedestrians will behave and then adjust accordingly,” the company wrote on its YouTube page.

In the short, 17-second video clip, the Waymo car slows down as two bicycles move out of a bike lane and into the right hand lane where the Waymo vehicle is approaching.
