“HumanDrive” project, a 30-month-long event launched by researchers at the University of Leeds in the U.K., aims to impart autonomous vehicles the same capabilities that let humans handle the often unexpected hurdles and real-world circumstances on road.

Researchers want self-driving vehicles to seamlessly integrate into our society by navigating all kinds of roads and driving conditions as smoothly as humans, notes Futurism.

As part of the project, self-driving cars will traverse a complex journey through winding roads, high speed roundabouts, highways and motorways, learning how to emulate human driving without any human input, writes New Atlas.
