On weekends my friends would say, “Let’s go to the Polish Hill; or Italian”.
Reaching our destination, we would go to the preferred restaurant or deli — and enjoy the cuisine of the day.
One Italian restaurant was my favorite — best scallops in a garlic-butter sauce. Delicious!
(So much garlic, no vampires would dare approach me : )
That was when I lived in Pittsburgh.
A city once known for being the headquarters of U.S. Steel.
And now a city moving at high speed in the 21st century.
Former steel town going high tech
These days Pittsburgh is Uber’s favorite place in the world.
The reason for that?
Uber likes the city’s relaxed approach to rules and regulations.
Which makes it the perfect place for testing its self-driving cars.
A favorable environment created by the local officials was the start.
Carnegie Mellon with its robotics department and talented engineers sealed the deal.
How will this be beneficial to us?
People of advanced-age or with health concerns would welcome driver-less cars.
Bars and restaurants: people that have been drinking would prefer to go home in a self-driving car.
Just two examples of how this would be beneficial to us.
Many hope this experiment in Pittsburgh is a success.
A future with autonomous cars may solve many of the challenges we now have.
Thanks for visiting.
