Self-driving car: Waymo CEO says its tech would have handled Uber incident safely
Self-driving car: The fatal collision on March 18 in Tempe, Arizona, has raised questions about the safety of autonomous technology in general, and of Uber`s system specifically, of which few details are known. An investigation by police and federal safety regulators is ongoing into the accident, in which an Uber test vehicle driving in autonomous mode hit a pedestrian at night as she was walking across a four-lane roadway with her bike.
John Krafcik, CEO of Waymo, said on Saturday that the company`s technology would have safely handled the situation. Image source: Reuters
