Uber self-driving car death riddle: Was LIDAR blind spot to blame?

They hardly jumped out right in front of it. As the post directly above yours points out, they were crossing the road in the open long before the car even got close.

As other posts have made clear, the "dashcam" footage of the incident is very underexposed, making it appear a lot darker and makes the pedestrian visible in the footage well after the point in time when they should be spotted, even by a purely optical system - dash-cam footage taken by other people on the same road shows that it is actually well lit.
