Cruise Recalls Self-Driving-Car Software Because Humans Are Dumb

HAL AI can’t deal with unpredictable people. Who could not “predict” that?
Here’s how the collision occurred. A Cruise AV was making an unprotected left and its software noticed a human-operated vehicle approaching at 40 mph in a 25-mph right-turn lane. The software determined that a crash was likely if the AV continued turning left as the oncoming car approached the intersection, so it stopped midturn. However, the human speeder then decided to move out of the turn lane and continue straight, speeding through the intersection, where it collided with the stopped AV’s passenger-side rear quarter panel. Two people were injured.
