PHOTOS: A closer look inside Uber's newest self-driving vehicle

Although it still has a steering wheel and pedals, Uber’s newest vehicle was specifically engineered and designed for a computer to drive.  After about three years of development with Volvo, Uber Technologies Inc. (NYSE:UBER) revealed its newest autonomous vehicle this week, moving away from the concept of retrofitting standard vehicles with self-driving technology.  When the updated vehicle is in autonomous mode its manual controls are disabled.
