For brian, its a video of a tesla crashing into a test car made out of
what looks like cardboard.
Tesla uses radar detection doesn't it?
Is the car a reflector of radar?
Its not obvious that it is.

A better description of what happened follows.
The tesla if driving along at say about 30 following another car, this othe
r cars sees a stopped car in front of it, so gently pulls into another lan
e to avoid it, the tesla then continues to drive straight into the back of
the parked life size cardboard car.
Personlly I don't understand how this can happen but it seems it has.
This is why and where cognative recognition is needed and the next thing af
ter AI, as AI just doens't 'cut the mustard' is the only term I can think o
but it's not a car it's cardboard painted to look like a car.
To the human eye it looks like a car, but it isn't.
What we need to know is did the tesla see it or what did it think it was a
low hanging cloud ?
But does Siri only recognise set phrases such as "lights on" or "dimmer
up" but fail to recognise "I want more illumination" or "make it darker"?
My in-car speech recognition only responds to a limited set of very
specific voice commands.
It does much more than set phrases and can be surprisingly
sophisticated when asking about particular news etc too.
Someone I spoke to on the net uses it exclusively
to post to forums and claims that it hardly ever
needs correcting. Don’t use it for that myself.
Can be a bit less than ideal when navigating. I still can't get it to
navigate to Waugh St in my town. Initially it used to mindlessly
navigate to Wall St New York, even tho it obviously isnt possible
to drive there from here. Doesn’t let you spell out the name. Now
its much better and offers similar names in my town, but still cant
manage Waugh St. Gets most other streets right most of the time.
Siri and Alexa do a hell of a lot better than that.
I don’t use Cortana yet so don’t know how it compares.

Should have used it
If they put this in a car I'd be impressed and then see how it argues who has the right of way on a road after an accident. :-)

Because it could have been a warning sign saying bridge collapsped.
Or if it was a box fallen from a lorry, suerly it's best to aviod a collision with any object and why it didn't try to aviod the object.
But what I'd want to know is why they bothered making a cardboard car surely they could have found a real car to use.
