More than a week ago, a terrible event in which a 49-year-old woman lost her life after being run over by an autonomous test car by the Uber company in Tempe, Arizona, triggered discussions about autonomous driving .

Both Uber and Toyota announced the halting of their testing programs and now it's the state of Arizona who has announced the suspension of all tests of autonomous vehicles on its roads,

The governor of Arizona affirmed yesterday that the license of tests of autonomous vehicles on the open roads  to Uber has been revoked.

Governor Doug Ducey said:

“In the best interests of the people of my state, I have directed the Arizona Department of Transportation to suspend Uber’s ability to test and operate autonomous vehicles on Arizona’s public roadways,”

Police are still investigating the event - captured on video - in which 49-year-old Elaine Herzberg lost her life after being run over by a Volvo XC90 from the Uber autonomous vehicle fleet. The woman, walking and pushing her bicycle, crossed at night a four-lane road barely lit when Uber's vehicle came on her. The person in the position of the driver of the vehicle - who for safety reasons must be present - did not pay attention to the road at the time of the event.
