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.

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

Obey or die! Actually, someone pointed out that only a small % of crossing between crosswalks is actually illegal. Wouldn't someone programming a self-driving car input allowances for common behaviors that aren't against the law?

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

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.

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...
