Uber is shutting down its self-driving car tests in Arizona, where one of the cars was involved in a fatal collision with a pedestrian in March, the company said Wednesday.
The company notified about 300 Arizona workers in the self-driving program that they were being terminated just before 9 a.m. Wednesday. The shut down should take several weeks.
Test drivers for the autonomous cars have not worked since the accident in Tempe, but Uber said they continued to be paid. The company’s self-driving trucks have also been shut down since the accident.
