According to the reports, these incidents can be categorized into two categories namely, “critical” and “bad experiences.” “The critical experiences “category is for actions taken to avoid injury to people or damage to property while “bad experience” category is for things like slamming on the brakes.

The report points out that over the six weeks beginning February 1, Uber’s fleet of 43 cars would make it an average of less than a mile before requiring some sort of driver action.

Although the critical interventions are generally rare but the frequency of the incidents is something to think upon for the auto manufacturers and tech giants engaged in developing self-driving cars, especially the companies which have plans to skip level 3 automation.
