SAN FRANCISCO Dec 22 Uber said on
Thursday its self-driving test cars had left California to begin
testing in Arizona, after California revoked the registration of
the cars, which it said lacked the proper permits.
"Our cars departed for Arizona this morning by truck," said
an Uber spokesperson. "We'll be expanding our self-driving pilot
there in the next few weeks."
San Francisco was to be Uber's second testing ground for its
self-driving cars after Pittsburgh, but immediately after its
Dec. 14 launch it became embroiled in a dispute with the
California Department of Motor Vehicles, which requires a permit
to test autonomous vehicles on public roads.
