governor suspended Uber's self-driving privileges Monday. Less than a year after Uber bought Otto, Alphabet sued. Look to Uber's travail in Tempe as the latest example.

California's Department of Motor Vehicles made both of these provisions clear to ride-sharing giant Uber on Tuesday, March 27, 2018, when the governmental body sent a notice of such guidelines to the company. Executives of companies that supply autonomous vehicle technologies pointedly said their their systems were capable of detecting the pedestrian. I'll bet Uber already has a pretty good idea of what happened, but so far they aren't telling. The program doesn't also have as much real-world testing experience as its rivals do like Waymo. The company said in a statement that it decided not to reapply for the California permit "with the understanding that our self-driving vehicles would not operate in the state in the immediate future".

Uber terminates self-driving cars service in California public streets. Investigations are underway and while some are saying it might not have been Uber's fault, it seems that it could be according to a new report from Reuters. When they will be completed remains anyone's guess.


Cristina Perez Hesano, attorney with the firm of Bellah Perez in Glendale, Arizona, said "the matter has been resolved" between Uber and the daughter and husband of Elaine Herzberg, 49, who died after being hit by an Uber self-driving SUV in the Phoenix suburb of Tempe earlier this month.

In one email, dated August 19, 2016, Uber official Ashwini Chhabra emailed Ducey's deputy chief of staff, Danny Seiden.

The self-driving vehicle community has long discussed the potential dangers of a "Hindenberg" for self-driving vehicles, Bryant Walker Smith, a University of SC law professor who studies self-driving cars, wrote in an email, referring to the hydrogen-filled airship's catastrophic explosion in 1937. This was after Uber's cars had been disallowed from testing in San Francisco as a result of their running multiple red lights.


Uber has offered no comment on the ongoing situation in Arizona.

On Wednesday, the governor's office did not substantively answer Ars' questions about the nature of its relationship with Uber, referring us instead to a two-page "point-by-point" rebuttal of The Guardian's story.
