Pittsburgh To See First Wave Of Self-Drive Uber Vehicles

Pittsburgh PA is scheduled to be a proving ground for a fleet of Uber self-drive vehicles. I am frankly kind of surprised at how quickly this all seems to be coming to fruition; Google has been testing "autonomous" vehicles for some time, but the prospect of "robot" cars for hire zipping around downtown Pittsburgh seems a long way from those sort of tests.
Uber’s Pittsburgh fleet, which will be supervised by humans in the driver’s seat for the time being, consists of specially modified Volvo XC90 sport-utility vehicles outfitted with dozens of sensors that use cameras, lasers, radar, and GPS receivers.
