Lyft, Waymo ink self-driving vehicle deal: NY Times
May 15, 2017, 09:38
Waymo and Lyft are forging a new partnership to work on self-driving cars, spokespeople for both companies confirmed Sunday night.
Waymo, the self-driving vehicle unit that operates under Google's parent company, has signed a deal with the ride-hailing start-up Lyft, the New York Times reported citing two people familiar with the agreement.
The companies declined to describe the nature of the partnership. The judge in the case recently recommended to federal prosecutors the allegations be investigated as a criminal matter and denied Uber's request it be settled in arbitration.
Things are also icy between Waymo and Uber. In theory, Lyft could help Waymo connect to a large user base of customers already using the ride-hailing service so Waymo doesn't have to build its own network from scratch.
Waymo and Uber are fighting in court over self-driving technology that Waymo says was stolen by a former employee who founded another company that Uber later acquired.
"We're looking forward to working with Lyft to explore new self-exploring products that will make our roads safer and transportation more accessible", Waymo said in a statement to multiple media outlets.
Waymo, an automotive business owned by Google's parent company, is now holding public trials on its own using Chrysler minivans equipped with its technology in Phoenix.
Waymo has some of the most advanced self-driving vehicle technology and has been looking for partners, while Lyft offers ride services in about 300 USA cities.
