March 5, 2019—Companies testing autonomous vehicles in Pittsburgh will have to immediately report crashes resulting in any injuries as part of new guidelines announced Monday intended to boost public confidence in the testing after a deadly accident in Arizona last year, reported the Seattle Times.

The Pittsburgh guidelines were included in an executive order signed by Bill Peduto on Monday. Representatives of the five entities testing autonomous vehicles in Pittsburgh—Aptiv, Argo AI, Aurora Innovation, Carnegie Mellon University, and Uber—expressed their support for Peduto’s measure.

These five companies have 30 days to submit initial information, such as neighborhoods where they expect to conduct testing, hours, and safety and risk mitigation plans, Ricks said.
