Uber has stopped its self-driving pilot in San Francisco, the company said in a statement on Wednesday. The announcement came shortly after the California DMV revoked the registration of the 16 test vehicles the company deployed as part of the pilot.

"We're now looking at where we can redeploy these cars but remain 100 percent committed to California and will be redoubling our efforts to develop workable statewide rules," an Uber spokesperson said in a statement.

. . .

Following the agency's letter to Uber's head of self-driving Anthony Levandowski, San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee also asked the ride-hail company to cease operation of its pilot. In spite of the city's many attempts to put a stop to it, Uber said it planned to keep its self-driving cars on the road.

. . .

In California an autonomous vehicle is defined as having the capability of driving "without the active physical control or monitoring" of a person. The state allows for the driving and testing of autonomous vehicles on public roadways, but requires the operator to obtain a $150 permit to drivein the state.
