Uber Self-Driving Car Struck A Jaywalker Because It Wasn’t Programmed To Recognize Jaywalkers

Back in 2018 we witnessed an Uber self-driving car hit and killed a pedestrian which they said was due to some software flaws and the inability of the self-driving car to recognize a jaywalker.

According to NTSB, the software failed to recognize the 49-year old until it was 1.2 seconds away, but then it was too late to brake.

As a matter of fact, the NTSB noted that Uber’s self-driving system didn’t even include a consideration for jaywalkers.

This is not the first and only case of Uber self-driving car not able to recognize roadway hazards. We also heard of two cases where an Uber car struck a bicycle lane post that was bent into the roadway.

In the second case, a safety driver was forced to take control of the car to dodge an oncoming vehicle and ram it into a parked car. Prior to that, there have been 37 Uber accidents.

Uber has since then made an upgrade to their software and even did a simulation of the system with sensor data from the fatal Arizona accident.

The NTSB is set to meet on the19 of November to find out what caused the accident that occurred in Tempe, Arizona in March.
