The Self-Driving Car’s Bicycle Problem

Bicycles are a difficult detection problem for self-driving cars

Self-driving cars are great at monitoring other cars. They’re getting better at noticing pedestrians, squirrels, and birds. The main challenge, though, is posed by the lightest, quietest, swerviest vehicles on the road.

Bikes pose a complex detection problem because they are relatively small, fast and heterogenous. A car is basically a big block of stuff. A bicycle has much less mass and also there can be more variation in appearance. There are more shapes and colors and people hang stuff on them.”
