Uber resumes self-driving car program in San Francisco after crash

"The vehicles collided, causing the autonomous vehicle to roll onto its side", Montenegro said in an email. After the accident was reported, Uber announced it would temporarily halt all of its autonomous vehicle testing until the investigation surrounding the accident was finished.

A group of Uber self-driving cars in San Francisco in December. According to documents obtained by Recode, human safety drivers needed to take control of Uber's autonomous vehicles roughly once every 0.8 miles last month.

The accident occurred when the other vehicle "failed to yield" while making a left turn, Tempe police spokeswoman Josie Montenegros said. All of Uber's self-driving fleet have a person behind the wheel at all times for safety reasons, so now it's a case of Uber reviewing what happened and finding what was at fault.

To alleviate any customer concern around its self-driving fleet, Uber has pulled every autonomous auto it owns off the road.

"The interaction between robot cars and human-driven cars is an area of serious concern and requires research", said Simpson.

Be that as it may, Uber's self-driving auto program has been buried in debate.

The California Department of Motor Vehicles has contacted Uber and is working with law enforcement to "find out more about the crash", the DMV told Quartz.

This crash happened after police said a private auto, being driven by a human, failed to give way at an intersection and the two vehicles hit each other.

Schiff treating Flynn immunity request with 'healthy skepticism'
A spokesperson for Nunes following the report refused to "confirm or deny speculation about his source's identity". Kelner said when the White House asked Flynn afterwards to complete the process, "he did so".

While relatively safe right now, Peduto said ultimately self-driving cars will reduce accidents and fatalities to a fraction of what they are today.

The crash in Tempe is unlikely to derail Uber's self-driving vehicle aspirations-especially if the incident played out the way law enforcement described, and Uber was not at fault.

The spokesperson said Uber's self-driving cars will hits roads again in San Francisco on Monday, but remain grounded in Arizona and Pittsburgh.

After the accident all the self driving vehicles by Uber vanished from the roads or Arizona. Neither driver was seriously injured, according to police.

Bill Cassidy and John Neely Kennedy, both Republicans, voted for the bill, as did most members of Louisiana's House delegation. Congress last month approved the resolution to repeal the privacy rules.
