 Uber initial investigation of pilotless death: pedestrians were detected, but the system did not respond.


In May 8th, according to the US News website TheInformation, in the case of Uber unmanned vehicle crash to pedestrians in tanpe, Arizona, in March this year, Uber decided that the possible cause was that the vehicles detector had detected pedestrians, but the Uber software system did not make a timely response. Photos provided by the police showed that the software had already seen the victim before Uber was hit by a self driving test vehicle. Visual Chinese data In March, a woman pushing a bicycle across the road was killed by a Uber autopilot vehicle, thought to be the accident that the autopilot crashed into a pedestrian and led to its death, and Uber opened the survey. TheInformation reports that Ubers autopilot software has the ability to identify objects on the road that cant be a real obstacle, such as plastic bags floating on the road. In the survey, Uber found that the perceptual software part of the unmanned vehicle might work properly, combining the camera and the lidar data to identify the surrounding objects. In this case, the software has seen the victim, and the problem is how to deal with the information in the system. According to the American science and technology news website Recode, usually autopilot can adjust the degree of caution when software faces obstacles. When visual recognition and understanding of objects are not so mature, the software is usually adjusted to be very cautious, which also causes the vehicle to stop and detect the week of the road. However, the rapid adjustment made the vehicle unable to respond quickly, and the Uber auto driving vehicle eventually failed to respond quickly to policy-making after monitoring the victims of the road. At the same time, the safety officer on the vehicle, who was supposed to take over the vehicle before the accident occurred to avoid subsequent tragedies, was not focused on the vehicle when the vehicle was about to hit the victim. It is unclear whether Uber will take action on the driver, Uber said in a previous statement that the safe driver is still an employee of Uber. At present, the company has reached a financial compensation agreement with the victims family members. The accident survey was carried out by the Uber and the National Security Transport Commission of the United States (NTSB). Although the Uber has already concluded some conclusions, it is expected that the US National Safety Transport Commission (NTSB) survey will be more detailed. A spokesman for Uber said in a statement, we are working actively with the National Safety Transport Commission (NTSB) to conduct an investigation. Out of this process and our trust in NTSB, we cant comment on the specific circumstances of the event. At the same time, we had a comprehensive security check on the autopilot, and we invited the former president of NTSB, ChristopherHart, to make suggestions for our road safety issues. We are checking from the new system safety to the vehicle operator training process, hoping to disclose more details soon. Uber unmanned vehicle impact on pedestrian death cases has great impact on Uber itself and industry. After the accident, Uber has been banned from conducting road tests in Arizona and refused to update its test permit in California.
