Both Waymo and Lyft have been working on self driving cars and now the two companies have announced that they are teaming up to work on autonomous vehicles.
Waymo is Google’s self driving car company and Lyft is a ride hailing company similar to Uber, the two companies will now work together on self driving car technologies.
“Waymo holds today’s best self-driving technology, and collaborating with them will accelerate our shared vision of improving lives with the world’s best transportation,” a Lyft spokeswoman said in a statement.
A Waymo spokesman said, “Lyft’s vision and commitment to improving the way cities move will help Waymo’s self-driving technology reach more people, in more places.”
It will be interesting to see what the two companies can develop in their new partnership and whether it will speed up the process of making fully self driving cars available to consumers.
