LAS VEGAS (AP) — The leader of Google’s self-driving car spinoff Waymo says he is confident in the company’s technology and its capability to interact with pedestrians.
Waymo CEO John Krafcik addressed a fatal collision involving a self-driving Uber car in Tempe, Arizona, during a question-and-answer session Saturday at the National Automobile Dealers Association convention in Las Vegas.
Krafcik says the company is dedicated to “making this technology safe.”
Uber has suspended its testing as the investigation proceeds.
