A Former Uber Executive Takes a Fresh Approach to Self-Driving Vehicles

The Future of Everything covers the innovation and technology transforming the way we live, work and play, with monthly issues on education, money, cities and more. This month is Transportation, online starting Nov. 3 and in print Nov 10.

Raquel Urtasun left her position as head of research and development and chief scientist at Uber Technologies Inc.’s self-driving unit earlier this year. Within three months, she had raised $83.5 million in seed funding—one of the largest first funding rounds by a Canadian startup—and launched Waabi, a Toronto-based autonomous-vehicle startup that is building self-driving systems for long-haul trucks.
