Uber won the Internet today with news that it is testing its self-driving car in Pittsburgh, the hometown of its Advanced Technology Center.
Kudos to Uber!
Testing a self-driving car is a big step, especially in real-world scenarios.
Photos of the car show an impressive array of sensors, which must make the car insanely expensive. In fairness, Uber ATC head John Bares is completely open that this is “nascent technology”.
It’s pretty exciting for me that they picked a Ford Fusion as the base for the car!
