Google has been hard at work on their self-driving cars, but people still have a lot of questions about them. Some of the biggest questions revolve around what happens when one of the cars inevitably hits a pedestrian. Even the best driver (or computer driver) can't always avoid hitting someone, if they walk or run out in front of a car. Knowing this, Google has been hard at work trying to find ways to help mitigate the damage to someone struck by one of their cars. And their latest patent shows a bizarre method for doing it.
