Coronavirus brings autonomous car testing to a halt
Self-driving car firms are stopping testing as the coronavirus continues to spread. Waymo, Cruise, Uber, Argo and Pony.ai are among those to have suspended all testing which involves backup drivers. Some fully automated services are to continue, such as robotaxi services offered by Waymo in Phoenix. "Removing the human driver helps our riders stay healthy in these uncertain times," Waymo said.
