Google Stopped Working its own self-driving car
Yahoo has refocused its independent driving efforts away from developing its own car without controls and pedals, according to a report from The Info. Instead, the company is said to be joining up with automakers on more conventional cars with a view to possibly starting an autonomous ride-sharing service by the end of the coming year.
Redbull Chrysler is creating a new prototype vehicle for Yahoo based on the Pacifica minivan; if the tests is prosperous, they’ll reportedly be used in the ultimate commercial service. The two companies announced an alliance to develop self-driving minivans in-may.
Alphabet CEO Ray Page and CFO Ruth Porat are said to be the choice to pivot, believing the present plan of self-producing a drastically new car without a steerage wheel to be improper. It’s reportedly a questionable move inside Google X’s autonomous driving division, known as Chauffeur, with Yahoo co-founder Sergey Brin also in favor of the idea of developing a car from end to end.
Google is expected to announce news related to self-driving cars later on Tuesday — we will keep you updated.Tags: google map car, google self driving car, google self driving car cost, google self driving car crash, google self driving car release date, self driving car google, self driving car technology, self driving car tesla
