Uber has been testing its new features with Denver's 911 system, which automatically sends the rider's location, as well as driver and auto information, to the dispatch center.
Khosrowshahi also said Wednesday that Uber is cooperating with federal investigators who are probing the company's deadly self-driving crash in Arizona last month. Following reports in 2014 that Uber employees used an administrative tool internally dubbed God-view to monitor active Uber cars and customers-and sometimes observed specific users' locations for amusement-Uber promised to use a newly created system to monitor and restrict employee access to such information.

The data will rerun every year and the drivers have to go through various testings before riding an Uber drive.
Denver Uber riders said they like the idea of the new safety features.
Uber's Safety Advisory Board was established in 2015 to bring new approaches, feedback, and expertise to our safety processes and technology.
