Last week, there was a number of news regarding self-driving cars. Now, Uber has planned to start a new facility in Detroit. The company announced few days ago that a fleet of self-driving Ford Fusions is currently taking passengers around Pittsburgh. The vice president of global vehicle programs Sherif Marakby has recently announced that the new fleet has been deployed to empower its coordination with automakers base headquarter in Michigan. Headquarter of Ford Motor Company is located near Dearborn. The Uber had selected 4-door sedans of the automaker to add them in its self-driving fleet. The vice president Marakby further explained that Uber is not interested to build its own vehicles or hardware, but we need to work with automaker companies for our future plans of providing services.
Most of the people have experienced last week that the company has included its self-driving cars. A few days ago, a similar statement can be given by Ford as it has offered a preview for its self-driving plans. Their plans include complete self-driving cars and these cars don’t have steering wheels and pedals. Ford in Detroit is not only the U.S automaker working on self-driving vehicles. General Motors is also testing its self-driving Chevrolet Bolts and planning to start demo with ride-sharing rival Lyft of Uber in the near future. The co-founder of Lyft John Zimmer said last week that self-driving vehicles will provide handsome service within next five years and their entire creation for the next decade.
