Uber driverless cars back on the road

For the first time since March, when a self-driving Uber car stuck and killed a pedestrian, Uber will put its self-driving vehicles back on public roads. This time, they will do so with extra safety:

Uber said on Tuesday that it has resumed testing its self-driving car prototypes in Pittsburgh. The company said it has added new safety features to the cars including a real time driver monitoring system designed to ensure the human drivers are attentive to the road, modifications to the dashboard screen to limit distractions, and a collision avoidance system that will be enabled during manual driving.
