Here's the video.
The Uber driver did not seem to be paying much attention. I wouldn't have either. Nor would you. The point is, and it's obvious, there was no time for a human to react.
However, one might easily have expected radar to perform better. In this instance, self-driving fared no better than humans. Not a great performance.
Would a Waymo vehicle have done better? I suspect so, but I do not know so.
Looking ahead: Radar will get better. Humans won't.
That's the all-important bottom line.
Will this slow down self-driving deployment?
