No, that's not what I said.

What I said was that HDR is not, and cannot be, used as a reference for what should be seen by what needs to be a video camera. That said, from what I've seen after making my previous comment I've seen cell phone video of the street at night showing almost as much detail as that still that paints a much worse picture of the quality/calibration of Uber's camera and has me wondering about the statements from the local cops about it being too dark to see the victim in advance.

Elsewhere on this very thread I said that LIDAR (which everyone but Tesla's self driving cars are using) should have detected the woman.

More broadly speaking, I find myself in increasing agreement with Timothy B Lee that even if not legally at fault in any of their recent crashes, Uber's cars are demonstrating a pattern of not being particularly good drivers.
Did you ever see history portrayed as an old man with a wise brow and pulseless heart, weighing all things in the balance of reason?
Is not rather the genius of history like an eternal, imploring maiden, full of fire, with a burning heart and flaming soul, humanly warm and humanly beautiful?
