“Pedestrian flypaper” as possible solution to be used on Google’s self driving cars


This will exclude the second, more dangerous impact to the ground “preventing the pedestrian from bouncing off.” An eggshell-like layer covering the adhesive would protect the sticky surface during everyday driving, but shatter in an accident to reveal the glue. “The adhesive bonds the pedestrian to the vehicle so that the pedestrian remains with the vehicle until it stops,” the patent describes. For the instant, not ever Google says if this idea will be applied. The existence of a patent doesn’t necessarily mean a new product is coming”, a Google spokesman said. The solution itself has advantages and less good aspects at the same time and an advanced analyze will be necessary to take decision to proceed.
