It will be interesting to find out if the automobile software immediately applied the brakes and if the car decelerated in that split-second (or seconds) between detection and impact. If it decelerated, what was the speed before detection and the speed at the moment of impact.

This is such a horrible accident but to be completely honest I didn’t even see her until the headlights were right on her. AZ is already bad enough as far as peds vs vehicles with actual drivers. But a dark street, dark clothes, and not being able to stop in time is dangerous.

I can’t honestly say I’d have seen her right away, either. She emerged totally from the shadows.

I’ve watched it a few times and agree. She seems to appear out of nowhere.

If the system had IR it should have picked the heat signature. Other then that it was impossible to avoid, by a human driver.

She should have watched for cars, but I think a human driver could have swerved or at least decelerated most of the way to a stop

Why on Earth was she crossing a busy street in the dark in the middle of the road? Not even at an intersection, but the middle of the road?

Isn't the point of AV that they "see" far better than us? Shouldn't the vehicle use whatever technology to geolocate objects/people far better than human eyes? Because it seems like that's not happening.

2 seconds from line of sight(in headlights) to impact. Doing quick math @ 30 MPH they would have 88 feet to react. Using "" as reference. Even if she was 100% paying attention, she would have hit the pedestrian average stopping distance is 89 feet.

This is a video. Hold up your phone in a dark room, and see if the video matches what you can see with your own eyes. Your eyes are much more adaptable to low light conditions.

It’ll be interesting to see what comes from Uber’s side of the story. You’d think they’d have tested in all types of situations prior to. Although I do suggest pedestrians wear brighter clothes and use crosswalks. AZ is already # 1 in pedestrian fatalities from human drivers.

Actually there were lights in that not far from where she made the fatal decision to cross at.
