Self-driving Uber involved in a crash in Arizona

According to Police from Tempe, where the accident occurred, the company's auto was not at fault; the second vehicle failed to yield for the Uber and caused it to flip over. But Uber neglected to obtain an autonomous vehicles license prior to the launch, leading the California DMV to revoke registration of the company's 16 autonomous vehicles.

The crash, which happened in Arizona, saw one of Uber's autonomous cars collide with another vehicle, leaving the driverless vehicle on its side in the middle of the road (above).

A Tempe police spokeswoman told Business Insider that the Uber vehicle was not responsible for the crash and that there were no injuries.

Uber then moved its testing to Arizona, which has no special regulations for autonomous vehicles.

Waymo, Google's autonomous vehicle division, recently filed a lawsuit against Uber-owned Otto for stealing trade secrets and intellectual property. Both companies will continue to develop autonomous vehicles separately.

While the claim is that the other vehicle caused the accident, questions remain over whether the Uber vehicle should have been more effective in avoiding the collision.

There was a person behind the wheel of the Uber when the crash occurred but no passengers in the backseat.

However, Uber has never used its self-driving cars in San Francisco to pick up passengers. The company has also recently come under fire after reports of a sexist work environment surfaced earlier this month, according to Bloomberg.
