Uber is rolling out driverless Volvo's 🚗 to pick up passengers…San Francisco here they come!
Uber ATG (Advanced Technologies Group) has done this before with Fords in Pittsburgh, but now Uber ATG is releasing their third-generation of driverless cars into the streets of San Fran. Any passengers in San Fran who call for an UberX are eligible! The autonomous Volvos will have a safety driver and Uber test engineer onboard, so you won't be alone with a computer driving 😂you.
Uber has strategically partnered with Volvo to be able to integrate all the necessary tech right into the car, vs. attaching it after purchase. 7 traditional optical cameras🎥, 360 degree radar, LiDAR and ultrasonic detectors are what it takes for the Volvo to safely navigate the virtual world it is seeing. It measures it's surroundings to the centimeter 📐and is constantly maintaining 20 meters in-front and behind it.
How's that for safety?

“You have an ability that not many other people have. That’s why…” He pauses to let out a soft laugh. “Well, you’ll see in a bit. I don’t want to overwhelm you right away.”
We reach the door to the courtyard, where we come to a halt. I gaze at the taller man curiously, with his sharp eyes and strong jaw, and wonder who the hell he is. Maybe he’s just crazy. Maybe he’s some elite bastard who went off the rails and decided to abduct a teenager to play games with him.
Shiro grabs the handle of the door and pulls, which is obviously stupid because these doors open outward, so you have to push them—
A weird click sounds. Shiro jiggles the door handle and, suddenly, slides the door to the right.
What. The fuck? Since when did it ever do that?
“Alright, here goes.” He gives me a smile and with a final tug, pulls it open.
I step out onto the other side of the courtyard door. What I find there is something that immediately brings me to tears.
More colors than I’ve ever seen before in my life greet my eyes. They bloom and blossom and explode in such a vibrancy that it makes me dizzy, crowding in all around and putting pressure on my skull.
The courtyard is teeming with life—grass sways in the wind, there’s the sound of laughter coming from somewhere off in the distance, and an enormous tree rustles above my head, scattering leaves here and there. I look up and see the sun for the first time, blinding and dazzling, so very bright.
It all sort of happens too quickly for me to process, so after instantaneously bursting into tears, I have to crouch down and bury my face in my knees. It’s too much. Too much information, too many colors I don’t know, it’s so vibrant and beautiful—
“Is that Shiro’s pet project?”
“Hey, n—what did you do to him, Shiro?”
Shiro sounds apologetic and slightly panicked. “I didn’t think—he’s overwhelmed. It’s too much for him to process. I’m sorry, Keith.”
“Aw, the poor thing!”
“Well yeah, if you bring him in from a world with no color to this he’s gonna freak out, dude. Sensory overload, you know?”
“Matt’s gonna kick your ass for this.”
“Keith, are you alright?”
