Dec. 3, 2018—Uber confirmed on Monday that it has hired a senior U.S. auto safety official for its autonomous vehicle efforts.

Nat Beuse, a long-time official at the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) overseeing vehicle safety research, is the latest federal official to join the private sector’s effort to commercialize self-driving vehicles, reported Reuters.

Uber has said it will resume testing with two employees in the front seat, enable an automatic braking system at all times, and more strictly monitor safety employees.
