Uber suspends self-driving car program in 2 states
06 April, 2017, 03:00
Uber is also fighting a legal battle after Google's self-driving vehicle company Waymo filed a lawsuit against Uber for allegedly stealing trade secrets and technology from it.
In addition, Uber's self-driving auto testing resumed in San Francisco, the company told CNNTech.
The vehicle involved in the Arizona crash was in autonomous mode at the time of the collision-meaning the auto was driving itself with a human riding behind the wheel-but police in Tempe say Uber wasn't to blame for what happened.
The California DMV reports include figures on how frequently the drivers must take control of the cars. Uber has confirmed the incident, and announced that their autonomous vehicle testing will be suspended until a thorough investigation is completed.
An average of 96 people die every day in the USA from motor vehicle accidents, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, but Uber's relatively minor accident - there were no serious injuries - stole the day's traffic headlines.
Uber began testing self-driving cars in Pittsburgh past year and soon expanded to Arizona, after its self-driving cars were banned from San Francisco's streets in December by the California Department of Motor Vehicles. The New York Times points out that the car-hailing company has run into trouble with both its self-driving program and its image in the last several months. The break was necessitated, at least in terms of optics, by a crash involving one autonomous Uber in Arizona this weekend, which was the subject of an (apparently quick, cut-and-dried) investigation. The spokeswoman explained that the company is confident in putting its autonomous vehicles on the road because they are not transporting passengers.
With that being said, Uber's self-driving vehicle programme has faced a substantial amount of controversy.
According to the police, the self-driving Uber SUV was obeying the law, while the human driver of the other vehicle was cited for a "moving violation".
Waymo, the self-driving auto division of Google, recently filed a lawsuit against Uber.
"The vehicles collided causing the autonomous vehicle to roll onto its side". The company moved its cars from San Francisco to Arizona in December after a deadlock with the California Department of Motor Vehicles. Fortunately, no one was seriously injured in the accident.
But these complaints are ignoring a major fact of the accident: Uber's vehicle was not in the wrong.
