Two of Uber’s autonomous vehicles (AVs)  have hit the road in Toronto  with drivers behind the wheel.

The cars are conducting mapping operations in the University of Toronto area from Tuesday until the end of this week.

Ontario became the first province in Canada to allow on-road testing of AVs last year.
