US regulatory agency launches investigation into Cruise autonomous cars

US Regulatory Agency Launches Probe into Safety of Cruise's Autonomous Vehicles

【PhoneAuto News】On October 18th, PhoneAuto noticed that, according to reports, Cruise, the self-driving car subsidiary of General Motors, exhibited dangerous behavior towards pedestrians. This incident has caught the attention of US federal regulatory agencies, leading to a safety investigation for General Motors.

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) in a document, they have initiated a safety defect investigation on nearly 600 self-driving cars from Cruise. During the investigation, NHTSA found that these vehicles, including at pedestrian crosswalks, may not have taken sufficient safety measures to protect pedestrians.

This incident is not the first time Cruise has attracted attention. Earlier this year, the company sparked market discussions with reports about its self-driving taxi service. It is reported that Cruise’s self-driving taxi service has been launched in the San Francisco Bay Area, making General Motors’ developments in this field highly anticipated.

In fact, as one of the future trends in the automotive industry, autonomous driving technology has attracted attention and investment from numerous technology and automotive companies. However, ensuring road safety in the rapid development of autonomous driving technology has become a focus for regulatory agencies and the public.

For General Motors, this incident is undoubtedly a severe test. The results of NHTSA’s investigation will have an impact on the company’s reputation and could affect Cruise’s self-driving taxi business. General Motors must take immediate action to address the safety issues of Cruise’s self-driving cars to avoid further public questioning and regulatory pressure.
