BUT IT GETS BETTER

AS IN WORSE:

> the system started seeing the pedestrian 6 seconds before impact

> it was behaving normally, no bugs or anything

> Uber disabled the fucking emergency brake

> that comes STANDARD with these cars

> ...because they expected the driver to handle that.

kleinbl00:

They didn't disable the e-brake. They disabled Volvo's emergency collision avoidance system. No doubt because they didn't want to let it sit there autonomously on their system, throwing up spurious life-saving measures and stuff.

As a result they have quality data indicating an inability to reliably classify pedestrians on the roadway.

Also a dead bicyclist.
