California revoked registration for all self-driving Volvo XC90 owns by Uber after the company reluctant to apply permits to run their testing. It would cost Uber only $150 per vehicle, and currently, they have only 16 modified Volvo XC90. Usually, it would take 72 hours to process the application, but California authority said they willing to expedite the process.
Arizona Governor, on the other hand, had invited Uber to run their test without having to apply for the permit.
“Our cars departed for Arizona this morning by truck. We’ll be expanding our self-driving pilot there in the next few weeks, and we’re excited to have the support of Governor Ducey.”- Uber
Without a permit, Uber will be able to run their autonomous program without having to report back any accident occur and a number of times their autonomous program disengaged. Maybe Uber’s autonomous program is not as good as others, and they are not willing to share the information to the public.
