For enthusiasts captivated by the promise of automated vehicles (AV), a now-viral video clip (shown below), originally screened at the Flir booth during CES, should come as a wake-up call.

There is good reason to be encouraged by the progress that AV developers are making with autonomous driving systems that keep drivers safe, but anyone getting too enchanted with the current state of autonomous technology should click on the video below, which illustrates the significant problems AVs have assuring the safety of people outside of the car.

Why would ADAS vehicles, supposedly equipped with pedestrian-detecting automatic emergency brakes (AEB), mow down crash-test dummies, one after the other, during a closed-course test?

Flir, a supplier of thermal imaging cameras for the automotive industry, made this clever clip using video footage provided by AAA. Last fall, AAA conducted tests on AEB with pedestrian detection (AEB-P).
