PITTSBURGH - It's been eight months, but Uber is getting back on the streets of Pittsburgh with its self-driving cars.
There are some strict guidelines Uber must follow, one of which is its self-driving cars cannot be on the road when the weather is bad.
Uber announced this week that it is resuming their self-driving car tests nearly nine months after a woman in Arizona was killed by one while walking with a bike across a street.
Uber told Channel 11 the program will resume under strict and safer guidelines.
"Before any vehicles are on public roads, they must pass a series of more than 70 scenarios without safety-related failures on our test track."
Some of the detailed improvements include:
- Two operators in vehicles for all testing.
- Better detection and tracking of pedestrians and cyclists.
- Cars can only be used during good weather.
- Self-driving cars cannot pick up customers.
