Google’s self-driving cars are learning to honk their horns

Google is teaching its self-driving cars to use their horns, the company says in its monthly self-driving car report

As the cars have gotten better at knowing when to honk, Google’s switched from an internal horn, only heard by test drivers, to a “loud, sustained honk” for dangerous situations and “two short, quieter pips” for less urgent issues.

“Our goal is to teach our cars to honk like a patient, seasoned driver,” the company saysSM
