Uber’s autonomous truck will be available to customers in Los Angeles and San Francisco starting August, the company announced Tuesday.
Uber will test the autonomous truck in LA in early 2019, which is the first city in the world to have autonomous vehicles in service.
It’s also the first time the truck will have a human driver in the front seat.
Uber plans to add more cities in the future to test its trucks and test its fleet of autonomous trucks.
The truck will use Google’s autonomous driving technology called LaneNet, which can make autonomous driving decisions based on the situation at hand.
It will be powered by a fully self-propelled, four-wheel-drive system that will run on a fully electric battery.
The company said it will test a second truck, the UberX 2, in 2020 in Pittsburgh, which will be the first non-autonomous vehicle in the US.
The second truck will operate with a human in the driver seat.
The autonomous truck is expected to be the company’s most ambitious autonomous test in the U.S. The autonomous technology was built for Uber’s rival Lyft, which operates in California and New York.
Uber’s autonomous vehicle, dubbed the Uber X, will be used in LA, San Francisco, Pittsburgh and Portland, Oregon.
The company says it plans to roll out the truck in more cities as it grows.
Uber and Lyft have been battling over how to regulate autonomous vehicles.
Uber has been working with Google to develop autonomous driving technologies for the truck, which could be used by the ride-hailing service to cut down on pollution and congestion.
Lyft has been testing self-parking technologies and self-balancing cars on public roads.
