The Brave New World of Autonomous Driverless Uber Cars 8/19/16 - A Whittle Bit of Commentary

The following is a rush transcript and may contain errors:

We are about to enter a brave new world of autonomous, driverless cars. Technically we already have them, but the ride share service Uber will introduce driverless cars that will be able to come and pick you up in the next couple of weeks. It’s a test run for now and will be only in Pittsburgh and if you’re brave enough to let a driverless car pick you up, the ride is free. Although, it’s not completely driverless, as they’ll have a backup driver present in the car just in case he’s needed. Love it or hate it, driverless cars is coming soon to a neighborhood near you. I just hope the driverless cars have less road rage than the current human occupants in the driver’s seat. I’m Chad Whittle on A Whittle Bit of Commentary. © 2016 Chad Whittle.
