Travis Kalanick: Uber is becoming ‘a robotics company’

SAN FRANCISCO — In case anyone still had doubts that Uber sees driverless cars as the future of its business, the company’s CEO just cleared things up.

Speaking Wednesday at Vanity Fair’s New Establishment Summit in San Francisco, Travis Kalanick said that Uber, which recently began testing self-driving cars in Pittsburgh, is on the path to becoming a robotics company.

The statement came in response to a question about where Uber’s top executive sees the company in next five to seven years. Kalanick, who has previously described Uber as a “logistics company,” said the company was increasingly moving toward becoming a robotics company.

“These cars, when they go into self-driving, you’re now starting to become a robotics company so I think we’re at the very beginning stages of becoming a robotics company,” Kalanick said. “We have hundreds of of scientists working on all parts of robotics, self-driving being number one.”.. see more
