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.

Measure 60-0, not 0-60.

Measure 60-0, not 0-60. Automous cars must impress the person beside you like a limo. The outside be damned.   Autonomous cars have to be different than what you see today. From the ground up different. In 2018, Uber killed Elaine Herzberg in Arizona. The NTSB deemed it a mistake, but …

Human road blending

Road rage ends well only when one person forgives. But in this case, there is no forgiveness. The motorcycle is luckily wearing leathers so he has little injuries. This is one reason I don’t want helmit laws. I can talk at length, but just like school shootings, everyone has an …
