Uber plans to develop self-driving electric scooters and bicycles

Uber is hiring engineers to develop electric scooters and bicycles which can drive themselves around cities in order to reach customers and charging points.

Electric scooter and bicycle-sharing services, including Uber’s Jump business as well as competitors Bird and Lime, allow customers to collect the vehicles and then leave them on the pavement outside their destination.

The businesses then pay contractors to collect, charge and repair the scooters and bicycles overnight when they’re not in use. It’s a costly logistical operation which significantly reduces profits for the operators.
