Uber passengers using these cars find themselves Uber Pooling. There’s a human driver at the front who takes the wheel every time the car’s sensors get confused and a software engineer at the back ironing out programme glitches.
But with this carefully structured launch (that currently comprises just four adapted Ford Fusions), Uber has stolen a lead on the driverless car debate. A few years from now, we’ll all be riding driverless cabs and we’ll respect Uber more because they got the ball rolling back in the day.
