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.

I thought the magic self-driving cars were supposed to see BETTER than people. Also, the backup human "driver" was clearly not watching the road.

🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸It seems to me that Tempi needs to put up some lights. That driver looked occupied and was not paying attention. For public safety you should always be able to stop your car. I'm still taking my knee. BLM.

He may have been through cameras. We don't know what's on his control screen.

Doesn't the car have infrared thermal night vision so it can see in the dark? Maybe needs some cameras on their cars.

Cameras don’t capture the light the human eye can, if only the useless bag of meat behind the wheel was looking at the road, this whole thing may have been prevented. Glad camera caught her texting or doing anything but paying attention. This will help the fam win the lawsuit. 🤬

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

...what? Cameras capture more than humans can. IR, UV, RADAR, etc. You commenting as if you saw the pedestrian before the headlights illuminated them is insulting. A regular human driver looks like they would have hit this poor person too.

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?

I get that a human driver couldn't avoid this. However, I'm interested to know why the car's sensors didn't detect the potential hazard in advance and the software slow the car down. Autonomous still safer than humans though.

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.
