frozen robot syndrome

(名詞/不可數) 機器人卡住症候群 - 無人駕駛車 (driverless car,亦即自動駕駛車,簡稱自駕車) 在路上感測到障礙物而突然停下來的情況。

A recent investigation by the Law Commission has revealed driverless motors could be stopped in its tracks [sic] by “frozen robot syndrome”. The concerning possibility would occur when the vehicle freezes in the presence of obstacles on the road, such as leaves, plastic bags or even seagulls. Software developers consulted as a part of the report even warned that unexpected weather, such as heavy snow, could cause a widespread traffic disruption.
