Uber resumes self-driving car program after brief suspension

Self-driving car crash comes amid debate about regulations

Self-driving car crash comes amid debate about regulations

The Uber auto was hit when the other vehicle was unable to yield, which caused the SUV to flip over.

Following the collision, Uber suspended its USA self-driving programs in Tempe, Pittsburgh, and San Francisco.

Uber put its autonomous cars back on the road earlier this week following the suspension of its pilot programme in three U.S. cities after one of its cars was involved in a crash in Tempe, Arizona.

The spokeswoman told us Uber felt confident in returning its remaining autonomous test vehicles to the road, having paused the passenger pilots to get a clearer picture of what happened in Tempe.

Uber has temporarily stopped its self-driving cars from operating after a crash involving one of its self-driving Volvo XC90s. The Uber test vehicle was not responsible for the accident, and despite landing on its side, neither the driver nor the other front-seat occupant was seriously injured. In almost all cases, the cars have backup drivers who can take the wheel in an emergency.

One in 10 United States women with Zika had deformed fetus or baby
Some may have seizures or muscle spasms, or a baby may have problems that are only detectable by a brain scan. Most of these women acquired Zika infection during travel to an area where Zika was known to be present.

Uber partnered with Volvo to develop its autonomous vehicle technology with the ultimate aim of creating fleets of driverless ride-share vehicles in multiple cities around the world. There were no serious injuries, and police cited the driver who failed to yield. 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.

With that being said, Uber's self-driving auto programme has faced a substantial amount of controversy.

Police say no one could have avoided Friday's crash. The permits do mean that if autonomous Uber cars experience more hiccups, like the red-light running incident that took place here, the DMV will hypothetically have access to the details, rather than just the Uber spin.

Uber Technologies has decided it will suspend its trials with self-driving vehicles, after one of its Volvo's crashed in Arizona this weekend, reports Bloomerg.

Other companies testing self-driving cars in Arizona include Waymo, a Google spinoff company, and General Motors. Since that time, the ride-hailing service has been picking up passengers in Ford Fusion cars retrofitted with Uber's driverless tech.
