Uber suspends autonomous driving trails after fatal accident

Before coming to Arizona to test its autonomous technology, Uber ran into some issues with California's Department of Motor Vehicles regardings its permits.

Uber has been using autonomous vehicles to shuttle Uber passengers in parts of Tempe and Scottsdale, the Republic said.

To pass a background check, Uber says drivers can't have a conviction for a felony, violent crime or sexual offense within the last seven years.

The American National Transportation Safety Board is sending investigators to probe the accident involving the Volvo XC90 sport utility vehicle, which had been fitted with Uber's sensing system.

Police said the victim, Elaine Herzberg, was struck while walking outside a crosswalk. As autonomous vehicle technology continues to be developed, bumps in the road have the potential to alter the behavior of regulators and developers - as well as public opinion.

The company was testing in MI and California, and unveiled a new-generation self-driving tester at this year's CES event in Las Vegas in January.
