Federal safety agency probing Cruise autonomous vehicle incidents in San Francisco
General Motors CEO addresses self-driving Cruise robotaxi unit
FOX Business’ Liz Claman spoke to General Motors CEO Mary Barra about GM’s Cruise robotaxi unit. They discussed the technology, safety of the driverless cars and we got Barra’s reaction to Arm CEO Rene Haas describing his ride in a Cruise vehicle.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has opened a formal probe into the operating system used by the Cruise autonomous service in San Francisco.
The General Motors-owned company operates a fleet of over 200 self-driving vehicles within the city in a ride-hailing service.
There have been several reported incidents of the vehicles exhibiting hard braking or becoming fully immobilized in the road, blocking traffic.
NHTSA said on Friday that while the issues "appear to be distinct, they each result in the Cruise vehicles becoming unexpected roadway obstacles."
