Self-driving Uber car kills Arizona woman

Uber spokeswoman Stephanie Sedlak says the media event will be held at a later date. "The vehicle involved is one of Uber's self-driving vehicles", the Tempe police said.

The public's image of the vehicles will be defined by stories like the crash in Tempe, said Bryant Walker Smith, a University of South Carolina law professor who studies self-driving vehicles.

"Right now, Congress is focused on exempting these cars from safety standards in an effort to get them on the market faster". A human operator was behind the wheel during the incident.

An Uber employee, Raphael Vasquez, was behind the wheel observing the vehicle's operation at the time of the incident, but police could not yet say if he took any action to avoid Herzberg.

"Our focus is always on providing safe, reliable and efficient transportation services to the residents and visitors of our city", said Jace Radke, a spokesman for Las Vegas. Reportedly, the man had failed to take control of the vehicle despite several warning to do so.

And in May of 2016, the driver of a Tesla Model S was killed while the car was in semi-autonomous 'autopilot' mode.

If the US had kept in step with other countries, David Leonhardt calculated at the New York Times, "about 10,000 fewer Americans each year - or almost 30 every day - would be killed".

U.S. federal safety regulators were sending teams to investigate the crash.

Herzberg was crossing the street mid-block when she was struck by the self-driving Uber, police said. However, a recent incident in Arizona leaves us to question whether these cars are really road-worthy.

Calo calls on those developing AI-based vehicles to think very carefully about the potential impact of their systems on human lives, and consider the legal and ethical implications. She died in hospital.

Video footage will aid the ongoing investigation, and the case would be submitted to the district attorney, Elcock said.

The National Transportation Safety Board said it is launching an investigation. An autonomous Uber car hit a pedestrian in Tempe, AZ, and caused her death. The accident comes in as a rude reminder of self-driving technology still being in nascent stages. The company suspended its test programs in San Francisco, Phoenix, Pittsburgh, and Toronto, according to The Washington Post.

In a tweet, Uber expressed its condolences and said the company was fully cooperating with authorities.

The 49 year-old woman, Elaine Herzberg, was crossing the road outside of a crosswalk when the Uber vehicle operating in autonomous mode under the supervision of a human safety driver struck her, according to the Tempe Police Department.

"The car cameras, the vision systems, they don't perform inductively, meaning they can't guess about the appearance of someone in a particular place and time", Cummings said.
