Driverless Car did not cause this Fatality
And in this case the video, cameras and sensors did provide that information.

It seems there was a manned safety driver in the vehicle as well at the time but the person came out of the shadows immediately in front of the car and would have been hit in any case.

But we need to remember that there are about 15 pedestrian fatalities daily in the US and over 300 daily injuries serious enough to require medical attention.

What is more, injury by inattentive walking is a rapidly increasing problem in the US.

Re: Uber’s no good very bad week
From the link you provided...

quote:
The car, a white Toyota Camry, got stuck at about 1:23 p.m. local time, according to the San Francisco Police Department. The car was being driven by a human at the time of the accident, according to an employee at Safeway.

And the picture shows a car without the additional pods seen on the uber self driving cars so it is very likely that it was just a normal car.

Re: Uber’s no good very bad week
The real question to me is whether even imperfect computers are better drivers than the average human.

The automated system does not have to be perfect or even near perfect, it just has to be better than humans. The bar favoring automated driving systems over humans is really, really low.

Perhaps they could someday have a lane on major highways dedicated solely to driverless vehicles.

Better yet, have a separate and walled off lane for the non-driverless cars.
