There are around 50 driverless cars being tested out in California and according to a recent report, four of these vehicles have been involved in accidents since last September.
The news comes in a new report from the New York Times, who have received some information on driverless vehicles that are being tested on public roads in California.
According to the report, three of the vehicles that were involved in accidents are Lexus SUVs that Google are using to test out their driverless technology, the other car was from Delphi Automotive who are testing out two cars.
What is interesting is that both Google and Delphi have said that their vehicles were not at fault in the four accidents, instead the accidents were apparently caused by other drivers, all of the four accidents were apparently minor ones.
Since the testing started back in September of last year, any accident, no matter how minor most be reported to the Department of Motor Vehicles.
Two of the accidents apparently happened in Self Driving mode and the other when being driven by people, all of the accidents occurred when the cars were traveling under 10MPH.
