Self-Driving Uber Car Crashes In Arizona — Kills Pedestrian

Uber's self-driving car killed a woman in Arizona

Meanwhile Uber postponed a media event at its Tempe facility. The testing was going on from months to check the cars that operates on their own.

"The driver said it was like a flash, the person walked out in front of them", Moir said. He and other Democrats joined Republicans to pass a bill previous year that doesn't require human backup drivers and allows companies wide latitude to conduct tests.

A 49-year-old woman was hit by a vehicle and killed as she crossed the street in Tempe, Arizona.

"Lessons need to be learned so similar tragedies are avoided in future", said Matthew Channon, an expert on legal issues connected to driverless vehicles at the University of Exeter Law School.

Red Arrows' plane crashes at RAF base
The aircraft was reportedly attempting landing, when it crashed and went up in flames at around 1 pm in the afternoon, local time. A Red Arrows jet has crashed after an incident at RAF Valley in north Wales, the Ministry of Defence has said.


Elcock says the investigation is in the early stages and will be aided by video footage of the scene.

Yesterday, we learned that Uber was halting all of its self-driving tests after one of the company's self-driving cars struck a pedestrian in Tempe, AZ, on Sunday. Carrying no occupants, it hit Elaine Herzberg, on Sunday. She died at a hopital. The US Consumer Watchdog organisation has called for a national moratorium on autonomous vehicle testing, saying that "there should be a national moratorium on all robot auto testing on public roads until the complete details of this tragedy are made public and are analysed by outside experts". It was believed to be the first pedestrian death associated with self-driving technology.

Uber suspended its self-driving tests in a handful of cities Monday following the crash.

The U.S. National Transportation Safety Board is sending a team to investigate the incident, while legislators are chiming in. She is the first pedestrian known to have been killed by a self-driving vehicle, a tragic moment which will prove pivotal in the future deployment of self-driving technologies and how widely they should be tested before they can be opened up to public spaces.

An Uber driverless vehicle heads out for a test drive in San Francisco in December 2016. Many, such as Arizona, Nevada and MI, cede key decisions to companies as they compete for investment that will come with the technology.

While self-driving cars have been involved in multiple accidents, it is thought to be the first time an autonomous vehicle has been involved in a fatal collision.

Currently, most states require a human driver to be seated behind the wheel when a vehicle is operating in autonomous mode in case something goes wrong. Uber and other companies chose to test their cars in the state of Arizona.

The woman died of her injuries at a hospital and her name was not made public. In 2017, Uber briefly pulled its vehicles from roads after an Uber self-driving vehicle in Tempe landed on its side.

Twitter user Delaine Gordon B added: "This is just one more example of how Hollyweird empowers women!" Others pointed out that the arguments against the artwork could be seen as hypocritical.


"Because we feel the incident may have an emotional effect on our test drivers, we have chose to temporarily pause our Chauffeur mode testing on public roads", a spokesman said.
