WASHINGTON: Uber Technologies on Wednesday unveiled its newest Volvo self-driving car. The car was unveiled in Washington as the company works to eventually deploy vehicles without drivers under some limited conditions.
Uber said the new production XC90 will be assembled by Volvo Cars in Sweden and have human controls like steering wheels and brake pedals, but added it has factory-installed steering and braking systems designed for computer rather than human control, Reuters reported.
Previously, Uber had purchased about 250 Volvo XC90 SUVs and retrofitted them for self-driving use.
