Self-Driving Uber is arriving now starting from Pittsburgh
Self-driving is not future tech now, its available for general public from today in Pittsburgh. Uber chose Pittsburgh to display its latest tech accomplishments. There are a lot many companies trying to make self driving car but they are far behind.


From Uber Blog

Of course, we can’t predict exactly what the future will hold. But we know that self-driving Ubers have enormous potential to further our mission and improve society: reducing the number of traffic accidents, which today kill 1.3 million people a year; freeing up the 20 percent of space in cities currently used to park the world’s billion plus cars; and cutting congestion, which wastes trillions of hours every year.

Before this Otto was running trucks in self driving mode, uber acquired them to get their engineering team on board with Uber advance tech team.

What it means for Riders?

Well its mixed feeling, now you may not be able to change pickup location as frequently as you did with human drivers? It will improve security for female riders where human drivers are concern.

What it means for Drivers?

I hope many drivers are concerned about their job but its highly unlikely that they will be affected by this tech soon. It may take many years to be full fledged. Uber explains in their blog post -

Technology also creates new work opportunities while disrupting existing ones. Many predicted that the ATM would spell doom for bank tellers. In fact, ATMs cut the cost of running a local bank so more branches opened, employing more people. Self-Driving Ubers will be on the road 24 hours a day, which means they will need a lot more human maintenance than cars today.
I would like to know your comments on this future tech.

Q. How can you regain access of your Uber account once it's disabled?

Recently uber had this scheme of "refer someone, that refferal gets 600 credits and you get 600 when he makes his/her first ride".

I made many people join , though all refferals were real and accounts were created with their permission and presence but all accounts were created from my phone .

I earned many credits. But soon my account was closed down.
Now whenever I try logging in from any acount in my phone  it gets banned within few minutes.

Is there any solution or any hack to avoid this and get my acount back ? I still have 5k credits left in my account and I desperately want it.
