About the Team
Uber is deeply rooted in the physical world -- our business requires a clear understanding of complicated real-world interactions and behaviors. The Sensing and Perception team seeks to understand these interactions about every trip through the use of sensors.
We create actionable insights that our partner product teams (Rider, Driver, Eats, Safety et al) use to improve customer and trip experiences. We do this by researching new models and algorithms and building platforms to serve our insights to customers at Uber scale.
This team is responsible for collecting and processing sensor data including GPS, IMU, Barometer, and more across phones and other Driver devices. Our team owns the core location pipeline ("Blue-Dot") at Uber that drives decisions across systems like ETA, Traffic, Routing, Safety, Fares, Matching and more.
We are part of a newly created org - UberAI - whose mission is to "to transform data into intelligence by pushing the frontiers of research, developing high quality scalable platforms, and collaborating on innovative applications."
