Uber settles self-driving car crash case with victim's family

Tempe/Phoenix (Arizona), Mar 30 (ANI): Uber has reached a settlement with the family of the woman killed by a self-driving Uber car in Arizona. Uber has settled with the family of the woman hit and killed by a self-driving Uber car in Arizona, ending a potential legal battle over the first death caused by an autonomous car.

Dashcam footage of the collision shows Herzberg, a homeless woman, walking her bike across a dark road in Tempe, Arizona and shows how the car doesn't appear to brake even as the woman comes into view. Other footage shows the human driver behind the wheel looking down seconds before the incident.

The death raises questions about the safety of autonomous vehicles on public roads, while its fallout could derail the testing of self-driving cars, which are designed to eventually perform better than human drivers and reduce road deaths. In the wake of the incident, Uber suspended testing of its self-driving car fleet across all North America.
