Uber suspends self-driving tests after vehicle hits pedestrian

Uber suspends self-driving tests after vehicle hits pedestrian

Uber has announced that it will be suspending North American tests of its self-driving vehicles, which have been going on for months in the Phoenix area, Pittsburgh, San Francisco and Toronto. 

This comes after an Uber self-driving car hit a pedestrian crossing the road at a speed of 65 kmph. The car was in autonomous mode with an operator behind the wheel and police were unsure whether it slowed down before the collision. The pedestrian succumbed to her injuries later in the hospital.

The vehicle in question was a Volvo XC90 but Volvo has issued a statement saying the software controlling the SUV was not its own. Uber has expressed its condolences on Twitter and said the company was working with local law enforcement on the investigation.
