Self-driving startup NuTonomy halted its pilot tests on Boston’s public roads after city officials requested a pause following the death of a pedestrian struck by a self-driving Uber Technologies Inc. vehicle in Tempe, Arizona.

“We are working with City of Boston officials to ensure that our automated vehicle pilots continue to adhere to high standards of safety. We have complied with the City of Boston’s request to temporarily halt autonomous vehicle testing on public roads,” a NuTonomy spokeswoman said in an emailed statement.
