Uber announces independent self-driving safety and responsibility board
In the aftermath of a March 2018 accident involving an autonomous Uber vehicle that killed a pedestrian in Tempe, Arizona, Uber retained law firm LeClairRyan to compile a report focusing on the safety culture and safety practices of the Advanced Technologies Group, or ATG. (That's the division responsible for Uber's autonomous vehicle development.) One of the recommendations it gave was the creation of an independent external review board that would examine Uber's policies, processes, and procedures. And today, roughly a year after the report's publication, Uber says it's established such a board.
