Uber driver's wrong turn strands vehicle on outdoor stairs

The police said the auto, driving in autonomous mode, had failed to slow down before it struck and killed a woman who was walking her bicycle across a street.

Uber did not immediately respond to Fox News for comment.

"Uber does not use Nvidia DRIVE technology".

"There certainly will be calls to stop all autonomous vehicles testing, not just Uber's program", Tomer said in a post on the institution's website.

After the accident, Uber temporarily suspended its self-driving program in Arizona, Pittsburgh, Toronto, and San Francisco.

Gov. Doug Ducey released a letter he wrote to Uber, referring to the video of the accident released on March 21, saying the Arizona Department of Transportation would be suspending Uber's "ability to test and operate autonomous vehicles on Arizona's public roadways". "As governor, my top priority is public safety". A separate camera view shows the vehicle's human safety driver, there to take control in an emergency, with eyes off the road and looking down before the crash. However, Uber's AV tests quietly continued for four months before they were publicly announced. While experience didn't necessary factor into the crash, it certainly doesn't help the company's case for testing in Arizona and its testing now being blocked by the state's governor.

Catalonia's ex-leader appears before judge in Germany
Monday's ruling is only the start of a cascade of court procedures in Germany over his fate that could drag on for months. The court said, however, that there questions about the ultimate outcome of the Spanish extradition request.

Technology giants, automakers, and vehicle parts companies, sometimes in alliance, are racing toward a future where cars driving themselves whisk people wherever they wish.

Over the years since taking office, Ducey took frequent opportunities to boost Uber's operations, tweeting about the company's services and welcoming them after they pulled their self-driving cars from California in a dispute with that state's regulators in December 2016 and shipped them to Arizona.

Update 3/28, 3:26 PM: Updated with comment from the Arizona governor's office.

"We are proud to welcome innovation to Arizona", he said.

Experts have told The Associated Press that the SUV's laser and radar sensors should have spotted Herzberg, and the vehicle should have stopped. And the company will have some explaining to do if it wants to get a new permit.

An Uber representative said no one was injured and the company is investigating the incident, which some reports indicated may have resulted from the driver receiving bad information from his Global Positioning System.
