CMU and Uber Announce Strategic Partnership and
Advanced Technologies Center
Carnegie Mellon University (CMU) and Uber are announcing today a
strategic partnership that includes the creation of the Uber Advanced
Technologies Center in Pittsburgh, near the CMU campus. The center will
focus on the development of key long-term technologies that advance Uber’s
mission of bringing safe, reliable transportation to everyone, everywhere.
The partnership will provide a forum for Uber technology leaders to work
closely with CMU faculty, staff, and students — both on campus and at the
National Robotics Engineering Center (NREC) — to do research and development,
primarily in the areas of mapping and vehicle safety and autonomy technology.
