Well, it's official. The temporary shutdown is now permanent. Uber is shutting down its self-driving car tests in Arizona, where one of the cars was involved in a fatal crash with a pedestrian in March. Uber plans to restart testing self-driving cars in Pittsburgh once federal investigators conclude their inquiry into the Tempe crash. Uber said it is having discussions with California leaders to restart testing.
Instead, they are opening up shop in Pittsburgh, Toronto, and San Fran. You've been warned.
"Uber said it plans to restart autonomous car tests in Pittsburgh, Toronto and San Francisco once officials investigating the Arizona crash wrap up. But questions remain about a program cobbled together in haste under ousted co-founder and CEO Travis Kalanick."
