General Motors’ driverless subsidiary, Cruise, is reported to be planning to relaunch in an as-yet unspecified American city.
The company has ceased all operations, both fully driverless and those with a safety driver, after a crash involving a pedestrian who had already been hit by another, human-driven, vehicle in San Francisco which led to California’s Department for Motor Vehicles suspending the company’s permits.
After that, and the subsequent pausing of operations, the company’s co-founder and CEO Kyle Vogt left the company.
Now Fox Business in the US quotes a Cruise spokesperson as saying: “Once we have taken steps to improve our safety culture and rebuild trust, our strategy is to re-launch in one city and prove our performance there, before expanding.”
