Uber is finally giving the world a peek at the car it’s using to test self-driving technology.

The ride-hailing pioneer posted a photo of a hybrid Ford Fusion outfitted with a variety of sensors and high-resolution cameras to gather mapping data while honing autonomous driving capabilities. The car can be found tooling around the byways of Pittsburgh, home to what Uber calls its Advanced Technologies Center.

San Francisco-based Uber is throwing its support behind technology that lets cars drive themselves, relying less on human drivers. In a sign of the convergence amid startups, the auto industry, and established tech companies, Uber recently joined a coalition that includes Alphabet Inc.’s Google and Ford Motor Co. to advocate for safety regulations for self-driving cars and help bring them to American roads.
