Pittsburgh’s Test Drive

Pittsburgh is making history this month. I wish I was there to witness it. Uber is putting self-driving Volvo SUVs on the road. 

I don’t think I have enough nerve to ride in a self-driving car so I am glad to hear that drivers will be on board to make sure there are no mishaps. 

Why Pittsburgh? 

Word has it that Travis Kalanick, Co-founder and Chief Executive Officer of Uber, partnered with Carnegie Mellon University’s robotics department to research and build the best autonomous automobiles ever. 

I wonder how many riders really want to travel in a self-driving car? I bet more than we think. This is just not going to happen by chance. Uber will allow customers to decide if they want a self-driving car from their app. 

This is going to be very interesting. Good luck and safe travels.
