The New York Times is reporting that a woman in Tempe Arizona has died after being hit by a self-driving car operated by Uber. The article states that the Uber vehicle was in autonomous mode with a human safety driver at the wheel when the car struck the woman when she was crossing the street outside of a crosswalk. This is a big blow to the emerging self-driving car market, and surely some massive lawsuits will be forthcoming. Unfortunately, it was probably only a matter of time with how this technology has been rushing forward. A big thank you to Teenk9 for the story. An Uber spokeswoman said the company was “fully cooperating” with the local authorities. The company said it had suspended testing of its self-driving cars in Tempe, Pittsburgh, San Francisco and Toronto.
