A self-driving car manufactured by AlseT crashed into a tree in adverse weather conditions. Fortunately, none of the passengers were seriously hurt. Unfortunately, the car is a total wreck.
Gecko, the car owner’s insurance company, is suing AlseT, arguing that, according to AlseT’s advertising and technical specifications, the car’s collision-avoidance system should have been able to prevent this accident. AlseT disputes this argument, asserting that its software functioned properly, and that the driver was at fault for not observing the guidelines and specifications outlined in the driver’s manual.
Your Role: Technical Expert
You have been hired as a technical expert by one of these companies to determine the real cause or causes of the accident and to write a short technical report explaining your findings. The audience for this report is the judge who will be hearing the case, so your report should be written for a non-technical audience. At the same time, your argument must be technically rigorous and be supported by evidence. For example, you might describe what you observed during an inspection of the wrecked vehicle, cite the results of tests you conducted, or refer to specifications and other documentation you studied. But remember, you’ve been hired for your technical knowledge and background, and are not expected to have any legal training. (You’re an engineer, not a lawyer.)
You are an engineer who has been hired for your technical expertise in self-driving car technology. (Lucky you!) Write a short technical report that takes either Gecko or AlseT’s side in the above-mentioned dispute. Write the report as a memo.
Your report should include, but not be limited to, the following sections.
You are encouraged to tailor your headings to your report by making them more specific and informational. You may add sections or subheadings as needed.
