#Uber has #released#footage of the #deadly#accident involving its #selfdriving vehicle in #Tempe#Arizona from Sunday March 18th.
The lights on the #SUV didn't illuminate 49-year-old Elaine Herzberg on Sunday night until a second or two before impact, raising questions about whether the vehicle could have stopped in time.
The crash was the first death involving a full autonomous test vehicle. The #Volvo was in self-driving mode with a human backup driver at the wheel when it struck Herzberg, police said.
The video shows the human backup driver in the SUV looking down until seconds before the crash. The driver looks up and appears startled during the last moment of the clip.
Tempe Police Chief Sylvia Moir has told the San Francisco Chronicle that the SUV likely wouldn't be found at fault. But two experts who viewed the video told The Associated Press that the SUV's laser and radar sensors should have spotted Herzberg and her bicycle in time to brake.
"The victim did not come out of nowhere. She's moving on a dark road, but it's an open road, so Lidar (laser) and radar should have detected and classified her" as a human, said Bryant Walker Smith, a University of South Carolina law professor who studies autonomous vehicles.
Uber immediately suspended all road-testing of such autos in the Phoenix area, Pittsburgh, San Francisco
Thank you Ethiopia... NOT! We thought the southern part from Arba Minch to the border would be fine, but our first day on this stretch to Konso was horrible. Kids everywhere harassing us again. A crowd of 100 kids came running at us and one idiot pushed Tanya off her bike as she was speeding past. Luckily she didn't break anything, but her bike was not so lucky: side mirror and light broken. Our advice: don't ever cycle here! #neveragain#ethiopia#cycleafrica#cycletouring#travelfar#accident#discoverafrica
SAN FRANCISCO — The ripple effect of a deadly incident involving an Uber self-driving car in Arizona widened Thursday as Toyota disclosed that it was pausing its autonomous car testing program.
Toyota has a small fleet of sensor-equipped Lexus vehicles that it has been testing on public roads in both Michigan and California. It will continue to test its cars on three closed, private facilities designed just for autonomous vehicles, GoMentum in California and MCity and the American Center for Mobility in Michigan.

Quand j'étais jeune je passais mon temps en roller, j'étais plutôt douée ... jusqu'a l'accident !
Rotule retournée, ligaments déchirés, lèvres intérieures et extérieurs ouvertes, le nez, le haut du front, 6 mois pour juste remarcher. Bref le vrai gros accident. Toujours des séquelles et des cicatrices apparentes à ce jour. Depuis j'en avais jamais vraiment refait comme à cette époque. Puis Liam a demandé des rollers à Noël. Il les as eu. Inutile de vous précisez qu'il est tout aussi kamikaze que sa mère. 2 ans il était déjà au Skate parc avec sa moto et son petit casque au milieu des ados surpris par ce petit machin qui n'a peur de rien. 4 ans il est a fond sur les rollers et apprend des figures en trotinette avec des jeunes de 15 ans toujours au skate parc. Alors quand il m'a dit :"Maman ca serait trop bien si on pouvait faire du roller et des courses ensemble !" Que mon amour du roller a ressurgit et que je suis allée en acheter de suite avec lui. On en a fait une demi heure ce soir juste pour le fun et c'était génial. Nos rires. Nos passions. Mère et fils.
Demain on recommence 😊
( j'ai aussi acheter des protections on sait jamais avec moi et pour donner le bon exemple et oui j'ai pris des rollers au rayon enfant expérimenter on ne rigole pas 😂) #roller#commealepoque#mereetfils#decathlon#oxelo#cestrepartitcommeen40#lesmauvaissouvenirs#accident#accidentderoller#cava#fun#bigbabyboy#cicatrice#mamsrun

Getting all of the paperwork together so we can go look at a new car this weekend. We were in need of a new car, it's just a shame because we literally just paid off the one I got into an accident with just 3 months ago.. Still suffering from symptoms of my #concussion and #PTSD but everyday it get better. #Vertigo is one of my worst symptoms but it's something I have been dealing with since I was a teenager so it's nothing I won't be able to handle. There is a bit of #confusion too.
I actually washed my workout clothes (since I only have one pair of pants that aren't see through..) from the accident that were covered in coffee and broken glass. I did plan on going to the gym today but I think I'll have to wait till tomorrow to do so.

Auch. One of the few downsides on working with wood, accidents do happen. My jigsaw tried to eat my pinky, so I had to rush to the emergency this afternoon. It was cut exactly on the line I drew. It'll be fine doc assured me. #woodworking#accident#stillabletoplaymyguitar
