Thanks. I think autonomous vehicle research was covered under research and development. I don't think they expected to earn anything soon from that (unless they sell it to another company). I'm actually surprised legal costs aren't on the list.

Another expense that doesn't appear is lobbying/political "contributions"/bribery costs that would explain how Uber management has skated on all their flaunting of local laws as well as how it (as well as Google) managed to convince the goverment and police officials of AZ to look the other way while they use the public streets as their text test track without any government oversight.
