But that is still too late. Did they say it can avoid the accident in the 1 sscond time if it is driving the car?



1) 1 second of braking from 40mph is plenty of time to slow the car to a non fatal impact, or possibly no impact.
2) It seems that video was nowhere close to representative of what a typical sensor suite (including cameras) would have detected, so a properly functioning system should've identified the pending collision much sooner than 1 second before impact.



Yep, 40 mph is about 59 ft/s. Any modern car can pull close to 1 g of decel at low speeds in dry conditions. So assuming near instantaneous computer reactions I would think they should have been able to cut speed in half before impact. That's a 75% reduction in impact energy and would increase survival odds immensely.

NTSB has issued a preliminary report.

"According to Uber, emergency braking maneuvers are
not enabled while the vehicle is under computer control, to
reduce the potential for erratic vehicle behavior.

The vehicle operator is relied on to intervene and take action.

The system is not designed to alert the operator.
"

WTF?

Look, it's like cruise control...

THE DRIVER IS EXPECTED TO PAY ATTENTION!!

So pretty much, unfortunately for Tesla and autonomous vehicles: In general there are two kinds of drivers:

(1) Drivers that love to drive, they want to drive.
(2) Drivers that love to be a passenger, they really don't want to drive.

IMHO, it's the (2) above that use all of those nannies. And they don't really want to drive, so they don't pay attention. 99% of the time, it may work: ACC, lane keeping, seat massagers, smart phone connectivity, you name it. But that 1% of the time, when they should be looking down the road, they are instead texting... and WHAM!

Now, the (1) above, the ones that most likely would be engaged with the driving and could be expected to react on that 1% of the time.. well, heck, they turn OFF the nannies and drive the car themselves. Precisely because these systems are so intrusive and issue too many false warnings. (*)

BTW, 1 second warning is hard to react. That pedestrian was toast regardless. Didn't the damn pedestrian see the car?

(*) The first time I drove a Honda car on the 405 with the nannys turned on I almost rear ended the car in front of me. As we were slowing down, the thing suddenly FLASHED a warning on the dash and my attention was drawn to that, not to the car ahead. Yikes. I KNOW HOW TO SLOW DOWN... ever since, the first thing I do when I get into a Honda car is to turn OFF the nannies.

Yeah, assuming that wasn't a typo, that's pretty f***ed up. You have a system which apparently was able to identify a potential issue many seconds in advance, and was able to actually identify the target as a bicycle well over 1 second in advance.

Yet, the system was not programmed to react to prevent a collision? I know they have a driver on board, but what the hell? If this is true, and the driver was made aware in their training that they were responsible for emergency responses, then the driver is in some trouble here, and because they were on the job, so is the company.

At the very least, an alarm should have sounded along with a flashing light as the lady and her bicycle was scanned (six seconds before the crash), which might have given the driver enough time to take preemptive action.

Another point- every other OEM uses two people when testing autonomous cars; while Uber for some reason is asking the driver to monitor all the systems as well as perform the emergency braking. It was never going to end well.

This fiasco, as well as the death wish accidents with Tesla's, have probably set autonomous cars back 5 years.

Don't forget that it has been proven time and again that automation breeds complacency. Even if you put driver #1 in a situation where they are using automation, they are going to be more complacent on average. Just basic human nature.
