Eight Days of Autonomous Vehicles

December 14, 2016:

Uber has expanded its self-driving taxi trial to the home of technology and autonomous vehicles; San Francisco. Starting from 14 December, Uber customers with a credit card attached to a San Francisco billing address are eligible to ride in a fleet of five self-driving cars.

December 22, 2016:

“Our cars departed for Arizona this morning by truck,” said an Uber spokesperson in an email to The Verge. “We’ll be expanding our self-driving pilot there in the next few weeks, and we’re excited to have the support of Governor Ducey.”

The move comes after California’s Department of Motor Vehicles revoked the registration of Uber’s 16 self-driving cars because the company refused to apply for the appropriate permits for testing autonomous cars.

This does not feel like progress.
