Uber brings Driverless developing cars Pittsburgh -

In order to develop its own driverless car, Uber has partnered with an operating unit within the CMU (Carnegie Mellon University) appointed NREC (National Robotics Engineering Center) earlier this year. NREC is known for its robotics research center that works closely with the government and people in the industry to apply robotics for the product and the real-world processes as autonomous vehicle.

However, the partnership is complicated as Uber poached 40 of its researchers and scientists as reported by the Wall Street Journal CMU leaving in a crisis. Among them, six senior researchers and 34 engineers. Besides that Uber also opened his own car search center conductor which is located just minutes laboratories Cren.

Jeff Legault, head of business development for NREC, WSJ said he would have preferred to Uber comes to them and work with the school to develop the technology. However, as the lines between academia and industry is a little gray, therefore it seems that industries always want talented people to work for them by leaving people with low key they left to suffer temporarily. On the other hand, this could be seen as an opportunity for the university to attract the most talented people in the future.

On the other hand, if we take a look at the bigger picture, the location of Uber in Pittsburgh will say that it could transform the city following the technology hub of the America similar to Silicon Valley.
