[PHI 2200] Google cars and responsibility

Google is developing technology for driver-less cars. The Nevada Department of Motor Vehicles issued the first license for a self-driven car with Google's driver-less technology in May 2012.

Now, suppose that a Google's car driver-less technology malfunctions and the car hits and kills a pedestrian (or that the car is otherwise involved in an automobile accident with human casualties). Who bears responsibility in such a case?
