Uber Technologies’ self-driving cars could be returning to California soon after state authorities permitted the company to test the vehicles.
Having started testing its self-driving cars with ride-hailing customers in Pittsburgh in September, Uber decided by December to test the vehicles in San Francisco.
In the new tests, the Uber cars will not be carrying passengers during the pilot, a company spokeswoman said.
In December, the company had offered to match riders who request an uberX in San Francisco with a “Self-Driving Uber” if one was available.
Uber later struck a conciliatory note, stating that it would halt its self-driving car trials in the city and would work with state regulators on obtaining proper permits for its test cars.
