Remember when you first learned to drive, and every time you had to stop, you stomped on the brake instead of easing down on the pedal? And you put your turn signal on a little bit earlier than you needed to? And you took right turns really, really slowly and cautiously?
That’s what it’s like being in one of Uber’s driverless cars. It’s a car that knows how to drive, but is still learning the nuances of being a driver.
It’s not totally clear to me how cars are going to learn to navigate the famed Pittsburgh Left, but since Uber is training its cars in the Steel City, they might want to get that item into the algorithm.
