Uber partners with U Arizona on optics for mapping and safety

Uber has signed a partnership with the University of Arizona focused on research and development in the optics space for mapping and safety. The partners will work to improve the imagery captured and used to build out mapping and safety features. As part of this partnership, Uber is donating to U of A’s College of Optical Sciences.

In addition, Tucson and the University of Arizona will be become the next site for Uber mapping test vehicles. These are already on the streets in Pittsburgh, where Uber is working with Carnegie Mellon University on autonomous driving (and subsequently hired 40 of CMU’s researchers).

In June, Uber opened a new Center of Excellence in Phoenix which is dedicated to providing customer support to riders and driver-partners.
