Self-Driving Volvo Uber Ignored Jaywalking Pedestrian

Post by MoVolvos » Sun Nov 10, 2019 10:48 am

In the NTSB report, the 2017 Volvo XC90 that hit Herzberg had its Volvo collision avoidance system deactivated at the time of the crash.

UPDATE 11/19/19, 4:20 p.m.: The National Transportation Safety Board has voted unanimously (3–0) that the likely cause of the crash between an Uber self-driving car and a pedestrian was the operator's failure to monitor the vehicle and the driving environment. Reuters reported that the NTSB, at its November 19 meeting, took Uber to task for "inadequate safety risk-assessment procedures and ineffective oversight of the backup driver." The agency recommends that NHTSA require self-driving-vehicle testing entities should submit safety self-assessment reports to the safety agency and that states pay more attention to oversight of autonomous-vehicle testing.

The newspaper cited anonymous people who had worked on Uber's self-driving prototypes as saying the ride-hailing company chose to scrap an automatic braking feature from its 200 test vehicles operating in Tempe, Arizona, because it wasn't "smooth" enough. The information comes one day before the National Transportation Safety Board meets to discuss the accident that killed Elaine Herzberg, 49, as she crossed a street in Tempe, Arizona, on March 19, 2018.
