Autonomous vehicles equipped with AI have ignited constant debate over whether they can match the driving skills of humans. Probably out of curiosity, a match between human drivers and a self-driving car will take place this week in South Korea.

At a motor show in Seongnam, a southern satellite city of Seoul, on November 17, ten people with diverse driving experiences will be pitted against an autonomous car on a 700 meters long track featuring a mixed obstacle course and a speed limit zone.

The contestants will be marked for how successfully they can carry out missions, avoid obstacles, and get to the track's goal.
