Apple Reports First Self-Driving Car Accident in California

The accident was a head-on collision for the Nissan Leaf and listed as a rear-end collision for the Apple autonomous vehicle.
The first auto crash experienced by Apple's fleet of self-driving vehicles happened just last week and it was apparently caused by a human driver - not Apple's own technology.
According to a report from The Information and Consumer Affairs, there seems to be a growing trend involving autonomous vehicles getting rear-ended by human-piloted cars. The crash resulted in "moderate" damage to the vehicle but nobody suffered any injuries.
The vehicle in question was a Lexus RX450h SUV equipped with Apple's sensors and hardware, and it was traveling at less than 1mph when it was rear-ended by a human-driven Nissan Leaf traveling at 15mph. The Apple test vehicle was traveling less than 1 miles per hour waiting for a safe gap to complete the merge when a 2016 Nissan Leaf contacted the Apple test vehicle at approximately 15 miles per hour. But Apple's competitors in the race for robot cars haven't been so lucky.
Both vehicles sustained damage but there were no injuries, the report said.
Apple is using its self-driving cars to collect data for Apple Maps while also working on refining its autonomous driving tech for future purposes. Dozens of companies have received permits to test self-driving vehicles on California roads, but those permits require the presence of a human safety driver. Google's test cars have been involved in about 33 accidents, including a serious one earlier this year. Apple Inc.is listed as manufacturer/business; the autonomous vehicle is listed as a 2016 Lexus RX450h, and it was struck at low speeds by a 2016 Nissan Leaf. Waymo's vehicles, for instance, tend to stop before turning, crossing an/merging onto intersection, and to give way to pedestrians.
