A California regulator has suspended a driverless testing permit for startup technology firm Pony.ai following an accident — the first time it has issued such a suspension.
CNBC reports that In October, a Pony.ai vehicle operating in autonomous mode hit a divider in the central reservation and a traffic sign in Fremont after turning right, according to an accident report filed with the California Department of Motor Vehicles.
“There were no injuries and no other vehicles involved,” the Toyota-backed company, said.
The suspension comes only six months after Pony.ai became the eighth company to receive a driverless testing permit in California.
