How to open an Uber car without a driver?
Posted September 25, 2018 05:47:53We’re about to enter the final few days of September, and Uber is already making a big push to expand the range of cars it’s accepting for its rideshare service.
We’ve covered a number of new features Uber is introducing that will help make the experience of using its new cars more seamless, and now the company is making the case for opening up its own self-driving vehicle network.
Uber CEO Travis Kalanick has already publicly stated that Uber will be adding some self-drive capabilities to its fleet over the next couple of months.
In an interview with TechCrunch, Kalanicks stated that “the next two years is going to be really big.”
Kalanicky made the announcement on September 12, and it comes on the heels of an earlier announcement that the company was launching a fleet of fully self-powered cars.
The company has been slowly ramping up its autonomous vehicle program in recent years, which means that it’s been working hard to ramp up the technology over the past year, even though the industry still has a ways to go before we see a fully self driven car in the wild.
But Kalanickers announcement is a welcome sign for the company.
While the company has said it’s working on a fleet that can handle more than 250,000 miles per day, the company says it’s also looking at adding some kind of lane assist, a feature that would help drivers maintain the required distance between them and the vehicle.
There are a number other new features that Uber is making available to its self-drivers over the coming months, including:A new “lane assistance” feature that allows self-Drivers to stay closer to the vehicle’s lane while using the lane in the front of the vehicle, for example.
This new feature would also help with traffic calming by allowing drivers to stay on the side of the road in order to avoid congestion.
This feature would be especially useful for the self-employed, who tend to live in the city more often than those with full-time jobs, and therefore require some degree of assistance to get around the city.
Self-driving cars would be able to use these lane assistance features when there’s a lot of traffic, for instance, or if it’s raining.
It’s possible that this feature could also be used to allow Uber drivers to work from home, while still driving in the same lane of the city center.
The same goes for drivers who work from other cities, for whom it might make sense to use this feature to get between cities.
Uber also announced that it would be launching a new feature called “passenger network,” which would allow drivers to share a single lane with passengers.
The feature will allow Uber to allow drivers from the same city to share the same lanes in a given city.
This feature is similar to the “passengers only” feature on Google Maps, where the driver will share the road with the passenger in the designated lane.
Uber’s self-driven cars are already rolling out in cities across the United States and Europe.
However, Kalans announcement comes on top of a massive rollout that took place over the weekend, when the company rolled out a fleet to the Netherlands.
Kalanics company also announced last week that it was expanding its service to the U.K. and Canada, and is now looking at launching a “wide-area network” for autonomous vehicles in China.
The full rollout of Uber’s fleet is expected to be complete by the end of the year.
