"Joshua D. Brown, of Canton, Ohio, died in the accident May 7 in Williston, Florida, when his car's cameras failed to distinguish the white side of a turning tractor-trailer from a brightly lit sky and didn't automatically activate its brakes, according to government records obtained Thursday."

I still want self-driving cars to become mainstream, but at the same time I believe all self-driving cars should allow a human to manually override the controls if worst comes to worst, and this incident certainly makes a case for that. 

My precious: 2013 Fusion Hybrid SE Ice Storm - Luxury Package (Dune), Navigation, Tech Package, Active Park Assist, Moonroof (ugh), 18" premium painted luxury wheels. Built in July 2012, bought CPO (former demonstrator) in May 2014. 6.3L/100 km lifetime fuel economy


Current temporary ride: 2003 Lexus LS430 w/navigation and parking sensors. Bought in December 2002, selling when I graduate

He could have braked easily but one news source said watching a DVD prevented him from seeing the problem!
I like the FFH's use of radar to sense approaching objects but it is annoying when it starts to brake for a cyclist on the shoulder - along with the collision alert!
