Although the accident is the first fatal accident caused by driverless cars and is regarded as a major setback for the automotive industry, the industry is still competing to promote driverless cars into commercial use.
A spokesman for Uber confirmed that the Pennsylvania Transport Department had approved its application. But it warned that the company had not restarted the test, only that we have received a letter of authorization, but we have not yet put the car on the road.
In November, Uber submitted a voluntary safety report to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). It promised that after restarting the test, each driverless car would be equipped with two safety drivers, and they would be strictly monitored. The company said it now monitors spare safety drivers with real-time third-party monitoring, limits their daily working hours and improves training. (small)
