    I feel like there should be a guy in red pajamas with a guitar hanging off of those traffic lights

    I like the part where it's moving at 125 km/h, sees a truck hurling traffic lights at it, and...accelerates to 142 km/h?

      The convention is to choose the pronoun "they" not "it" when talking about a human whose preferences are unknown to you, and doubtless the driver did not "see a truck hurling traffic lights". This is a video of a tablet showing off bugs in a machine vision system, which is still running even when a human is actually driving the car.

        Come on dude, clearly Zygo is talking about the software, and assuming it is in control of the car.

        It puts the foot on the gas pedal, or else it gets the hose again.

    Awesome, the software makes the assumption that traffic signals are stationary. Therefore they must pass the vehicle at a speed relative to the speedometer, right ?

    That's the same sort of "real world" shortcut assumption that makes AVs believe that a person with a bicycle will only travel with the flow of traffic.
