NTSB docs: Uber's radar detected Elaine Herzberg nearly 6 seconds before she was fatally struck, but “the system design did not include a consideration for jaywalking pedestrians” so it didn't react as if she were a person. via
“The system design did not include a consideration for jaywalking pedestrians,” investigative documents said.

worth comparing this with the original invention of "jaywalking" as a ploy by car manufactures to deny responsibility for traffic fatalities uber deliberately makes the roads unsafe to justify keeping pedestrians off them

Jay was also a racial slur back in the day, as because being irish was pretty frowned upon

A. This is the Boeing 737Max mentaility. B. Fundamental problem with self-driving cars. They have to be safe *even if* humans act “incorrectly”. Yes this is pretty well impossible: so big business will lobby against safety. Resist.

It would require an acceptance that people who may not be following the law still deserve to not be killed. So good luck with that here

If I remember correctly, there was a person behind the wheel of this car whose job was to be monitoring the road and ready to step in if something like this happened. They were watching a video on their phone instead.

Human factors. You cannot expect somebody to do absolutely nothing for 6 months waiting for an automated system to drop a ball it never does, then blame _them_ when it suddenly gives them 6 seconds to overrule it & save a life but they don’t...

Replace “jaywalking pedestrian” with “kid chasing ball”, “dog chasing cat”, “neighbor pulling out trash cans” and you see why I stand by the belief autonomous cars are farther out than people think and that few people building them are parents

Did they also assume that all cars will obey road laws, or just pedestrians?

The Tesla driver with autopilot on died because Tesla didn’t factor in for things being in the way (like a big semi making a left turn across his lanes). So... yes. Not enough anomaly detection or even expectations there of.
