Behind The Wheel Of Uber's Self-Driving Car

Posted on September 14, 2016

For now, two Uber employees will accompany every trip to monitor the car’s self-driving capabilities — one behind the wheel, and the other in the passenger seat with a laptop displaying the data and images gathered by the car’s sensors. Uber’s ultimate goal, though, is enabling customers to summon a car on demand with nobody in it.

The company says it plans to gather feedback from customers who opt into the trial and use it to make decisions about how to expand its self-driving program. It’s just a test run, but it marks the first time self-driving cars are being deployed in a ride-hailing capacity.
