Uber Employee Warned Self-Driving Cars ‘Are Routinely in Accidents’ Days Before Fatal Crash: Report

The Information published the lengthy letter that Robbie Miller—at the time a manager in the testing-operations department—sent just before he left the company for another job. He reportedly sent the email to VP of software Jon Thomason and head of autonomous vehicles Eric Meyhofer, as well as five lawyers and executives.

“The cars are routinely in accidents resulting in damage,” Miller wrote in the email published by the Information: “This is usually the result of poor behavior of the operator or the AV technology. A car was damaged nearly every other day in February. We shouldn’t be hitting things every 15,000 miles.
