Cycling U.K. is the new name for the old CTC.
The lady that was killed by a Uber Car was a pedestrian wheeling along her bicycle with loaded plastic bags on the handlebars. It says that the cars systems had difficulty in determining if she was a pedestrian, a car, a plastic bag etc.
The various solutions took time as one tried to override the others “type of thing”. My words but hope you get the drift.
The programmers have to dumb down the software of the cars or they could be stop/starting all the time. Plastic bags blowing in the wind. Birds doing there suicide act across roads etc.
It is a very good artical. He was saying as I read it, these cars will have to cope with so many variations of Things impeading their journey that the only solution would be putting them in special fenced off lanes.
He wrote what happens if two of these cars come head to head in a single track road !!
It is an excellent artical which was really saying you cannot beat the old noggin (sober of course)
