I would like to express the victim's condolences.

The accident made me think that we should introduce fully automated vehicles after we make a rule and a law for the new products. Who should take responsibility when accidents happen? This is a really important issue that should be solved before the introduction of the cars.

Quote from last para: "A Uber car" (sic) means the make is also Uber, I wonder?

What has made Toyota pause? Could it be that the woman who was said to have been pushing a bicycle as she crossed created a confusing profile for the computer?

The local police chief said that the pedestrian was at fault, darting into the lane from the center of the road at night. He said the video from the car showed that a human driver could not have reacted any better than the AI car.

He said the video from the car showed that a human driver could not have reacted any better than the AI car. thats the thing people think that a self driving car is fool proof , while a computers reflexes are far Superior than a humans it still has to bring a 1000~2000kg vehicle to a halt as quickly as possible. when a pedestrian suddenly jumps in front of you it wouldn't matter who is controlling the vehicle its still going to impact that person.

A human driver would most likely have slowed, stopped, swerved, any kind of evasive action to avoid the pedestrian. Uber technology should also have picked up a moving figure that wasn't completely obscured from over a hundred feet away. There is going to be a settlement in this case for sure.
