Uber urged to scrap all driverless efforts

  • Author:Ella Cai
  • Release on:2018-08-16
Uber is being urged by investors to scrap its autonomous driving unit called its Advanced Technologies Group, reports Reuters.

The unit is reported to have lost between $750 million and $1.2 billion in the last six quarters.

Earlier this month Uber announced it was withdrawing from its autonomous truck driving operation.

Two years ago Uber paid $600 million for the autonomous truck driving start-up Otto.

Last February, Uber transferred $244 million worth of shares to Waymo to  settle a lawsuit relating to alleged theft of autonomous driving technology which had arisen from the Otto purchase.

Last April a new CEO, Dara Khosrowshahi, took over at Uber and is thought to be preparing it for an IPO by reducing its losses which were running at $1 billion a quarter. The effort is going slowly, in its last reported quarter – ending June 30 – it lost $891 million.
