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.
