Uber may “very soon” launch its self-driving car fleet in SF

According to a CNET report, a fleet of Uber-branded self-driving vehicles have been spotted in a warehouse in San Francisco. The discovery implies that the ride-hailing service is apparently getting set to launch its self-driving car fleet for San Francisco customers.

The indications of Uber’s imminent launch of a self-driving car fleet in San Francisco marks the expansion of the company’s self-driving pilot in Pittsburgh --- the only US city in which Uber currently offers its self-driving cars after launching a small fleet in September this year.
