Waymo, the self-driving car unit of Google’s parent company Alphabet, has shared how it’s been training its vehicles to automatically identify emergency vehicles. The human eye is fairly adept at observing where a flashing blue light is coming from and heading too, while the human ear can usually narrow down a siren to a rough location behind or in front. With eyes and ears combined, human drivers are generally good at manoeuvring out of the way of oncoming ambulances, police vans, and fire trucks. But throwing self-guiding vehicles into the mix poses some potential problems, which is why Waymo has been working specifically on this challenge.

The relationship quickly soured when the Chinese partner seized the company’s proprietary assets and shut down the entire operation in a hostile takeover. By 2011, Fellowes had lost approximately $100 million — all because it had failed to properly vet its OEM partner Fortunately, the century-old family business was able to recover from this chapter in its history; it now owns and controls 100 percent of its assets.
