  • Changes to Robotaxis’ Response to Sirens

The incident, among other things, should serve as a case study for what happens when the robotaxi is part of a crash that has already begun, triggered by a car. This had not occurred in the US before October.

Surprisingly, the robotaxi didn’t already have the programming in place to make sure it would stop if a pedestrian was hit and stay in place. Or the sensors needed to detect the situation.

It is at least foreseeable that, at some point, a pedestrian might become trapped underneath a robotaxi, regardless of whether the robotaxi was to blame or not. The car would then need to stay in place.

It is known that robotaxis have some code that governs their behavior when solid objects such as traffic cones are driven over. However, it is unknown to what extent a Cruise Robotaxi can classify these objects and make appropriate decisions.

Cruise previously claimed, in defense of its robotaxi, that the car began braking 460 milliseconds before a pedestrian was detected walking into its path. This is much faster than any human being could react.
