Tuning of car’s software to avoid false positives blamed, as US National Transportation Safety Board investigation continues
An Uber self-driving test car which killed a woman crossing the street detected her but decided not to react immediately, a report has said.
The car was travelling at 40mph (64km/h) in self-driving mode when it collided with 49-year-old Elaine Herzberg at about 10pm on 18 March. Herzberg was pushing a bicycle across the road outside of a crossing. She later died from her injuries.
