Tempe police are investigating a crash involving a self-driving Uber vehicle overnight

Police said Herzberg was walking a bicycle across the street outside the crosswalk when she was struck.

Uber launched its self-driving research program in 2015 and had deployed cars on roads in Phoenix, Pittsburgh, San Francisco, and Toronto. No one was harmed in that accident. When asked to describe what it means to be in "autonomous mode", Tempe police deferred to Uber.

The Phoenix area is a fertile ground for experiments in the technology.

Arizona has been an important testing ground for self-driving technology.

In a recent blog post at JAMA, health policy professor Lawrence Gostin pointed out that the US has been lagging its peers when it comes to implementing evidence-based policies that reduce the risk of traffic deaths.

The Uber car was driving 38 mph in a 35 mph zone late Sunday night.

Herzberg, according to officials, was declared dead at a hospital. Police believe she may have been homeless.

A woman in the American state of Arizona has been hit and killed by a self-driving Uber car, police have confirmed.

He said the accident in Arizona, while tragic, is not going to slow down the autonomous industry.

Self-driving cars will continue be tested and developed, while the laws will continue to try and catch up.

The death has an international impact, sparking discussion in the United Kingdom and Australia.

Though many in the industries had been dreading a fatal crash they knew it was inevitable. General Motors and Intel both have significant testing operations in the state as well.

Uber requires all autonomous vehicle tests on public roads to have a safety driver at the wheel.

"We're within the phase of autonomous vehicles where we're still learning how good they are". He says neither Herzberg nor the man behind the wheel monitoring the vehicle showed signs of impairment.

Safety advocates called for a national moratorium on all robot car testing on public roads.

Like any new, transformative technology, self-driving cars have the potential to make people's lives easier and safer on a wide scale. "That's why Uber and Waymo test there. When there's no sheriff in town, people get killed".

Uber is famous for its worldwide taxi service, but has been open about ditching drivers once self-driving technology has matured.

Reports indicate that Uber Technologies is considering selling its driverless car technology to Toyota. There were no injuries.

A woman was struck and killed by self-driving Uber in Arizona. In addition, the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) said it is also investigating the crash, agency spokesman Christopher O'Neil said in an email to CR.

That is the hard part.

Uber has logged 3.2 million km through December. No passengers were in the vehicle at the time. Safety regulators later determined Tesla was not at fault.
