• EEVblog #1066 – Uber Autonomous Car Accident – LIDAR Failed?

    A self driving autonomous Uber car killed a pedestrian in Tempe Arizona. How did this happen?
    It basically shouldn’t have.
    TLDR; It looks as though the LIDAR and/or RADAR system failed to detect the pedestrian until fairly ideal practical circumstances.

    A look at the newly released camera footage of the accident, the location, and the car LIDAR, RADAR, and camera sensor suites available to prevent such an accident.
