Uber’s Self-Driving Vehicle Project in Pittsburgh Has Lost Its “Wow Factor” as Testing Raises Tough Questions

Pittsburgh Tribune-Review looks at Uber’s testing of self-driving vehicles in Pittsburgh a year after the company started the operation, reporting that “the wow factor is wearing off. The tests ignited a new industry in Pittsburgh. They shined a spotlight on the depth of automation, robotics, artificial intelligence, computer sensing and perception and self-driving technology talent at the city’s universities and startups. But the tests also brought to the surface questions about how cities should manage self-driving cars and the roles and responsibilities of the companies developing and testing them.”
