As the New York Times reports, the car was in autonomous mode when it struck the woman who was crossing the road. She was taken to hospital where she died from her injuries. A human safety driver was behind the wheel.
Obviously, some bugs need to be worked out. These autonomous driving companies really should be pooling info, if human lives are at risk, don't you think? Open source it. I know, I know ... competition, trade secrets ... but someone's died. How much corporate profit is worth even a single life?
