This guy posted his experience of when he took a ride in the Level 4 Autonomous Hyundai Ioniq. Seems like it works pretty well but there are certain everyday driver characteristics that it obviously will not follow because it's just not programmed to do it. For example the below:

Perhaps the most interesting moments came when the car encountered the many minor law violations that occur on roads everyday. Hyundai has programmed it to obey the law -- it couldn't ethically do anything else -- but that meant the car stuck to a sedate and legal 25 miles per hour while most other road users cruised by at faster speeds.

At at one stage, when turning right at a junction, it encountered a pedestrian who wasn't waiting on the sidewalk but in the gutter. The car sensed him in the road and slowed to an almost halt. A human driver might have simply taken the curve a little wider.

The short drive only took about 10 minutes so it was impossible to really see the car working under a number of different conditions -- but then, the technology isn't production-ready yet.

its simply just the reality of self driving systems we have these days. While they have a long way to go the trick is know what its strengths and weaknesses are.

Tesla's roll out of autonomous tech was one good example and there's a lot of video out there to support what's being said.

On top gear a few years ago in their news section they were talking about autonomous cars and the fact they may have to make a decision of killing the occupants rather than a bunch of pedestrians if something major occurred. Whilst that a bit of a dramatisation, it is a real possibility that does the car dive off to the side wiping people out, or have the head on crash with the lorry?
