These have not easy days for the ride-hailing service cum truck technology company Uber.
- Founder and CEO Travis Kalanick was either forced out or took an indefinite leave of absence.
- It got hammered by the California DMV for testing its trucks without a proper license, something which has since been resolved.
- Wyamo, a subsidiary of Alphabet (Goggle’s parent company) accused an Uber exec of stealing some of its self-driving technology.
Still, the company recently announced its own entry in the trucking company Uber Freight, and showed off its latest autonomous truck technology, which includes spinning 64-channel LIDAR laser sensors.
