On Tuesday, United States transport regulators said that uber self-driving car struck and killed a woman in Arizona last year. It failed to recognize her as a pedestrian because she was jaywalking.
The US National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) said that the woman was crossing the road at a location without a crosswalk.
And that the system design did not include consideration for jaywalking pedestrians.
In the preliminary report, the NTSB had already determined that the car’s software spotted the woman nearly six seconds before the vehicle hit her.
According to the latest report, the system did not classify her as a pedestrian but rather considered her an object.
Following the March 2018 accident, Uber suspended its autonomous driving testing in all locations in the US.
Later on, it resumed the program within months.
According to a report, 37 such crashes occurred between September 2016 and March 2018
