The current unmanned technology research and development is in full swing throughout the world, unmanned technology much commercial respected, and was predicted to be following the personal computer and smart phones after the third global commercial value of unlimited technology consumer goods.
In the ideal of people, the biggest advantage of unmanned driving is that it can greatly reduce or even eliminate Sensor the traffic accident rate, various precision instruments continue to monitor, high-precision three-dimensional map continuous assistance, artificial intelligence perfect handling operation, automatic driving is considered to be more The human driver is more reliable, because the latter will be operational errors and human error, such as walking God, drunk driving, fatigue and other issues.
An unmanned aerial vehicle in the United States suffered a personal injury. An unmanned car, which was tested at Mountain Headquartered in Google's headquarters, was rearranged by another car. Three employees in the accident in the neck sprain, in the hospital after the inspection has been normal work. Another driver of the car, also known as the neck Fuel Rail Pressure Sensor and back pain. In the United States, California, Mountain View, a Google unmanned car Lexus RX450h trying to bypass a pile of sandbags in a wide lane, with a bus side of the collision, resulting in the left front fender, , And the driver side sensor is damaged. No passengers in the vehicle were injured.
The above incident, although not lead to personal death, but also confirmed that unmanned technology in the current and can not fully trust, and the following two unmanned death accident, the more unauthenticated unreliable The
Accident 1: China Hebei Gaoying case. January 20, 2016, Gaoying driving Model S into the Beijing-Hong Kong and Macao high-speed, after the vehicle has been driving along the left-most lane. From the traffic recorder recorded in the picture can be seen in front of the vehicle there is a road clear taxi docked, and playing a flashing light signs. According to common sense, Model S should see the front of the vehicle after the vehicle should quickly turn to the right lane to avoid the accident, but this model did not change the lane Model S, but also before the collision did not slow down and turn the signs, resulting in the driver Gao Yining died on the spot. In the aftermath of the traffic police inspection report, did not check fuel metering valve the brake and steering traces. Then proceed to the accident investigation process, the driver Gao Ning's father Gao Ju Bin found the accident Model S Autopilot is likely to be in the open state, therefore, to 'induce the user' in the name, sue Tesla China sales company, that its Marketing and promotion process over-exaggerated Autopilot function.
Incident 2: Joshua Brown, Florida, USA. At 3 pm on May 7, 2016, Joshua Brown drove a 2015 Tesla Model S to collide with a vertical trailer on the Florida freeway. When the Model S passes through the trailer, the windshield hit the bottom of the trailer. After Model S out of control off the road, hit the roadside barbed wire and poles. In the impact, Model S top completely crashed, Joshua Brown died on the spot, truck driver Frank Baressi was not injured.
Tesla's explanation of two unmanned deaths. In response to China's Hebei Gaoying case, Tesla did not make any statement, but after the accident, Tesla China official website on the Autopilot system of Chinese translation from 'automatic driving' to automatically assisted driving. 'For the United States Accident, Tesla's explanation is: white truck in the background of the blue sky can not be identified, and from the perspective of Tesla Autopilot, trailer truck side is suspended on the ground, this very rare situation led to the Autopilot system Negligence, no automatic braking, and the collision of the vehicle at the same time as the Tesla windshield, so that the collision safety system can not play a role, which directly led to the death of the driver in the accident, all the sensors did not play a role The sensor used in the Tesla Autopilot is the MobileyeEyeQ3 vision system in the middle of the windshield, the millimeter-wave radar under the front bumper, and the 12 ultrasonic sensors around the vehicle. With a powerful algorithm, a monocular camera Temperature Sensor can be used Most of the auxiliary driving system. Focus on the unmanned system research Wu Gansha believes that unmanned need to fully consider the integration of sensors, rather than blindly believe that the algorithm, this time if you use a better visual sensor or in a higher place to install a millimeter-wave radar, the accident may be avoided The
The main engine factory as an unmanned vehicle provider, before the application of technology, should take into account all the safe use of the case, in the event of an accident, the responsibility of the OEM is unavoidable. In addition, the driver to be clear, unmanned technology is still only as a driving support system, as the driver of unmanned vehicles, from the moral point of view, if you do not want to drive their own and the servant's life away, You want to drive an ordinary car, attention, hand steering wheel, do safe driving. The previous responsibility to share, nothing more than to the perpetrators, infringers and infringers, and sometimes add Speed Sensor a vehicle product liability issues, but for unmanned, now another more platform responsibility, with the artificial intelligence system Of the addition, there was another driving 'brain', which also produced a platform responsibility.
