Uber just launched self-driving taxis. They started rolling along the streets of Pittsburgh today.

i-e The world’s first Self-Driving Ubers are now on the road in the Steel City.

The launch of Uber's self-driving pilot program marks the public unveiling of the company's secretive work in autonomous vehicles and the first time self-driving cars have been so freely available to the U.S. public.

The aggressive San Francisco-based startup Uber has already shaken up the world’s taxi services, earning a valuation of $68 billion. It plans ultimately to replace many of its 1.5 million drivers with autonomous vehicles.

According to Reuter, there will be only four self-driving vehicles available to passengers, to start, and two people will sit in the front to take over driving when the car cannot steer itself.
