Uber's self-driving fleet taken off road after deadly accident

If you were to picture a world where self-driving cars were everywhere, would you see it as a world without accidents? That is certainly the goal of autonomous vehicles. Ultimately we want to be free to read a book, check our cellphone, or talk with friends in a car that drives itself, all while not having to worry if it will make it from point A to point B without getting into an accident.

Such a sci-fi utopia may be in the cards, but days like this past Monday put the potential problems of self-driving cars into focus. A crash in Arizona killed a 49-year-old woman, and left Uber and the police scrambling to figure out what exactly happened.
