But this wasn't the software's fault. It never is. It was the designer who allowed a single faulty sensor to put the software into a dangerous state. This is an aircraft control system and it should have existed at least in duplicate, with multiple separate sensor inputs to insure that the system is always right and that if a situation ever comes to pass where it cannot be certain it is right, then it will cede control completely to the pilots
