Detecting and avoiding a collision with a wrong-way driver

The Aurora Driver detects a wrong-way driver over 300 meters away and slows its speed to allow the vehicle to turn off the road.

 The Aurora Driver has just exited the highway in Houston. Traveling Southbound after a stoplight has turned green, it perceives a vehicle in its lane driving the wrong way toward the truck.

The Aurora Driver slows its speed given this dangerous situation—which allows the vehicle to make its turn off of the road—and thereby successfully avoids a collision.
