Uber has deployed two self-driving cars to Toronto streets as the company continues to research the technology but the vehicles will have a human driver behind the wheel, at least for now.The vehicles are being driven by specially-trained operators from Pittsburgh and are primarily being used to complete mapping work in and around the University of Toronto’s campus, according to Uber spokesperson Susie Heath.

The testing comes about a year-and-a-half after the province enacted legislation that allows on-road testing of autonomous vehicles, so long as approved groups follow a list of precautions, including having a human in the driver’s seat at all times.
