Why didn’t LIDAR pick this up? 

Its Christine Part-G, Lethal Lidar.

This is the Uber death in Arizon on 3/19/2018. At night, the Google car uses many cameras (for sure running opencv), but they also depend on Lidar, you know the spinning thing on the top of the iconic driverless cars. The Lidar creates a 3d map of every solid object ahead. The spinning rate is very indicitive of the cost of the Lidar. The faster the spinning, the faster the image recognition and the higher the cost. I hope they release all the telematics so you can see the braking rate.

 

 

A jury will have fun with this. We have all driven at night. I have noticed that anything on camera at night is incredibly hard to make out. The camera looses something. But in reality, our eyes will pick it up….  A human visual driver might have “suspected” something like a dog crossing the road. You know, the spidey sense when your visual cortex notices a “delta” at night, that something is wrong ahead.

Notice she is walking her bike, not riding it. That is a good sign. We have read accounts about Ms Herzberg (the deceased) having a sorid past, so we wonder about her toxicology. It makes me wonder what the press would say about me in similar circumstances?  Mr Pruett was known to have trouble with anger as people account his recent appearance at the Collierville school board meeting where he chanted “Classroom windows must open”. Ok ok.

So here we are with a technology death. That electric toothbrush which we bought, came out and killed us. Perhaps Bing hacked the opencv library and caused Google’s stock price to go down in Tempe Arizona! Come on Steven King, its Christine Part-G.

Did you know Russia uses English STOP signs?

I was surprised to see this stop sign, written in English on this Russia video. Its about the ABM which I gather is a “shield” type anti-missle program in Russia. Fun to see how fast that missle goes up and also interesting that the silo is kept empty until they …

Uber läuft rüber (Uber run over)

Uber runs over Elaine Herzberg  Yes, Uber finally did the deed. It killed someone where a human driver probably wouldn’t have. What is to be seen is the dash cam which you know Uber records, but no one has seen yet. This happened in Arizona. The autonomous vehicle regulatory free-for-all …
