Google Inc. Co-Founder Sergey Brin said one of its driverless car was involved in another rear-end accident, even as he defended the prospects for the self-driving technology.

The accident occurred in the past week, Brin said Wednesday during a meeting of shareholders in Mountain View, California. Google’s self-driving vehicles have been involved in 11 accidents in the six years they’ve been in testing, though none was the fault of the car, the company said last month.

“I’m very proud of the record of our cars,” Brin said. “Our goal is to beat human drivers.”

Google is grappling with questions about the safety and performance of driverless cars. The company’s investment in such vehicles is part of its internal project, Google X, that focuses on long-term opportunities for cutting-edge technologies. Google has touted safety as an advantage for the cars that can use sensors, maps and other tools to avoid the mistakes leading to accidents caused by human drivers.
