Toyota Motor Corp. said on Tuesday it will pause autonomous vehicle testing following an accident in which an Uber Technologies Inc self-driving vehicle struck and killed a woman in Tempe, Ariz.
Toyota said in a statement "the incident may have an emotional effect on our test drivers. This 'timeout' is meant to give them time to come to a sense of balance about the inherent risks of their jobs."
