Uber Advanced Technologies Group announced it would begin collecting data on Dallas’ road network, specifically targeting downtown Dallas. The ultimate goal of the data collection: Self-driving technology, better known as autonomous cars.
Uber, however, was cautious to note that, just because Dallas has been added to other cities from which data was collected — Pittsburgh, PA; San Francisco and Toronto — Dallasites shouldn’t look to see driverless cars on the streets of the CBD anytime soon. The first step is a manual drive — beginning in November — in which a specially-trained vehicle operator will survey roads throughout downtown Dallas. Following that, the focus will be on map development, simulation recreation and expansion methodology.
“Should we look to operate our vehicles autonomously after the initial data collection phase is complete, we’ll work closely with stakeholders at both the local and state level,” according to Uber.
