Uber understood the growing demand for driverless technologies and partnered with Motionalto to capitalize on the growing space. Motional is a United States-based automobile company founded in 2013. The firm specializes in developing safe, reliable, and accessible driverless vehicles. 

Karl Iagnemma, President and CEO of Motional, said, “We’re confident this will be a successful collaboration with Uber and see many long-term opportunities for further deploying Motional’s technology across the Uber platform.” 

He also mentioned that their first delivery partner is Uber, and they are eager to begin using their trusted driverless technology to offer efficient and convenient deliveries to customers in California. The new partnership marks Motial’s expansion into the driverless delivery market and Uber’s first on-road delivery partnership with an autonomous vehicle developer.
