Uber is Looking To Upgrade To Self Driving Cars
This sounds kind of freaky to me but I guess it is 2018.
How would you feel being picked up by an autonomous vehicle? I don't know if you've seen the movie 'Upgrade', but this could end totally bad. Plus, it's taking away jobs from every day people. That's one of the main reasons why I think Uber is so cool, it's an opportunity for more income.
Any who, Uber is teaming up with Toyota to make this happen. Their working on building self driving cars. As of Monday Toyota is investing $500 million to the partnership. The goal is to make this happen by 2021.
FYI, the reason Uber is teaming up with Toyota because the company failed five months ago, after one of the test vehicles ran over and killed a pedestrian crossing a dark street in Arizona. Scary!
According to NBC10, ""Our goal is to deploy the world's safest self-driving cars on the Uber network, and this agreement is another significant step towards making that a reality," said Uber CEO Dara Khosrowshahi."
I guess it is a cool and futuristic idea but still ... super skeptical.
