Waymo boss says his tech would have averted fatal Uber Arizona crash

Daily Mail - Science & tech 

Uber's self-driving cars were 400 times worse than Waymo before the fatal Arizona crash, according to a leaked internal report. The firm's cars were unable to reach 13 miles (21km) without human intervention, while cars made by the Google subsidiary Waymo could drive 5,600 miles (9,000km). According to a 100-page company document, Uber was also struggling to meet various other safety goals in the weeks before the crash. For instance, the cars were having trouble driving through construction zones and next to tall vehicles. The CEO of Google's Waymo has since said that the recent death of a pedestrian in an accident involving an autonomous Uber car would not have occurred with his company's technology.
