Uber launches robotaxis

Uber Technologies Inc. is launching its first robotaxi service, reaffirming the company’s commitment for a self-driving taxi fleet even as the hype around autonomous vehicles fades.

The San Francisco-based company is partnering with Motional, which is an autonomous driving joint venture between Hyundai Motor Co. and Aptiv Plc, to allow customers to hail self-driving rides in Las Vegas, the companies said in a statement Wednesday.

I know this was their plan from the beginning, probably why they never hire their drivers as actual employees.

On another note, I want to see AI deal with SA driving conditions :ROFL:
 
The headlines in with these automous driving projects is always misleading. 17 years ago we heard similar things
