Uber to settle with family of victim in self-driving auto crash

It is true that since at least 2015, Ducey has offered prominent support for autonomous vehicles in general.

Nvidia's chief executive officer Jensen Huang claimed that Uber does not use the self-driving platform architecture of Nvidia Corp.
The governor of Arizona put the brakes on Uber's self-driving program in that state, citing "disturbing and alarming" dashcam footage from the fatal crash. In a tweet, he said he was "very disturbed" by the crash video.
Uber terminates self-driving cars service in California public streets.
Uber, the largest ride-sharing company in the world, has stated that it is slated to let the company's permit with the state of California to test self-driving vehicles on the state's public roads expire on Saturday, March 31, 2018. But he said the accident won't affect Toyota's relationship with Uber. "This is obviously one of the lows".
Member station KJZZ in Tempe reports that an attorney for the victim's family, Christina Perez Hesano, confirmed the settlement Wednesday night, but provided few details. Earlier this week, it was revealed that the company wouldn't be reapplying for a permit to test its self-driving cars in California. "What would happen if we weren't a part of that future? We continue to assist investigators in any way we can".
