‘We are just trying to provide the best possible experience for our customers’
Traveling the world for a company like Uber has been a dream for many, but for those working in the field of transportation, the reality is that most of them don’t even have the time or resources to do so.
That is where virtual reality comes in.
The company is working on virtual reality for taxi drivers and for passengers, and in order to do that, they need to bring their own equipment.
But the key to their VR experience is that they need the driver to be present during the entire process, which can be difficult to do with headsets like the Oculus Rift and HTC Vive.
For Uber, the virtual reality experience is just one component of the company’s vision for how they will change the way people travel.
“The main thing is that the driver can actually be in the car and actually interact with passengers,” CEO Travis Kalanick said during an interview at TechCrunch Disrupt.
“We have to have the driver present.”
For this, the company is using a system that takes virtual reality and a real-world experience, and combines them to create a virtual environment.
“We’re using the latest VR tech,” Kalanik said.
“I mean, this is what’s cool about VR.
You can create a completely immersive virtual environment.””
This is the way we’re going to be able to change the experience,” Kalampo added.
Uber is working with a team of engineers to create this virtual reality system.
Kalanicks VR team has developed a prototype that has been testing in Austin, Texas.
This system uses a pair of glasses to make the driver see a virtual world of real-life taxi drivers in Austin.
A pair of cameras record the virtual world, and then the drivers can interact with the passengers.
This is where the real-time VR takes place.
The virtual reality is made of two glasses, one with a camera mounted on the left side, and one with the driver on the right side.
The driver and passengers can interact, and when they do, a virtual scene appears on the other side of the camera.
The virtual scene is a virtual taxi.
In order to test the system, Kalanikkks team had to get the taxi drivers to sit in the driver’s seat of their car, and the drivers needed to interact with a virtual driver, who was then placed in the front seat of the car.
This created an environment that was very similar to what is in the real world.
The VR experience was a combination of both a virtual reality environment and the real ones, and both were very close to one another.
The team is working in partnership with a company called Tango that also builds VR headsets, but they have a different approach.
Tango is building a VR platform that is specifically designed for taxis.
Toga is using this platform to create VR content that will allow people to get to the other parts of the city and get to other locations without having to drive.
Uber says that this is a much better experience than having a VR headset in your hand and just seeing a virtual experience.
The team is trying to get their driver to interact in a similar way to what you’d see on a live-action TV show.
They’re hoping that they can make this experience accessible for people of all ages, and that it will allow them to travel around the world.
Uber isn’t the only company working on VR solutions for transportation.
Lyft is also working on a system for virtual reality, but it doesn’t have an app for the market yet.
