Uber has abandoned its self-driving car trial in San Francisco
Uber has been forced to abandon its controversial self-driving car trial on the streets of San Francisco after the 16 cars being used in the test had their registrations revoked.
The California Department of Motor Vehicles made the move after Uber refused to apply for a permit that certified the autonomous cars as test vehicles. Uber argued that because their cars still have a driver capable of taking the wheel and control of the car if needed, the permit did not apply to their specific self-driving cars.
Uber has been told that if it secures the necessary permit it will be allowed to put the cars back on the road.
