What Uber drivers think about their robot replacements

Last week, Uber launched its self-driving car pilot program in Pittsburgh. Customers in certain parts of the city can now hail an Uber, with the chance that they’ll be picked up by a self-driving car.

Though there’s someone sitting in the driver’s seat, the cars guide and drive themselves. And Uber has long felt bullish about its technology: CEO Travis Kalanick says the company’s whole fleet could be "driverless in 2030."

The day that Uber launched its Pittsburgh program, VICE News took a ride with some of the drivers that Uber could put out of a job with its autonomous cars, to ask them whether they were concerned about sharing the road with the self-driving cars that will put them out of business.
