Last year, Uber struck up with Volvo, which built the TNC’s autonomous tech into a fleet of XC90 SUVs for testing in Pittsburgh and San Francisco (until the California DMV kicked it out). But the Daimler deal marks a new approach for Uber. Until now, its public plan called for stuffing its homegrown tech into vehicles built by an established manufacturer like Volvo, then deploying it. Such a move eliminates the driver, letting Uber keep the entire fare.
