HONDA SELF-DRIVE CARS EYED FOR 2020

The Denver Post - - BUSINESS -

Honda is in talks with Google to in­stall the com­pany’s self-driv­ing tech­nol­ogy in Honda ve­hi­cles.

Honda says col­lab­o­ra­tion with the Google unit called Waymo would let re­searchers learn about in­te­gra­tion of sen­sors, soft­ware and com­put­ers.

The au­tomaker says that if a deal is reached, it will pro­vide ve­hi­cles to Waymo that are mod­i­fied to han­dle the tech­nol­ogy.

Honda has said it in­tends to put au­ton­o­mous ve­hi­cles on high­ways around 2020.

The po­ten­tial part­ner­ship would be the lat­est in a flurry of au­ton­o­mous ve­hi­cle deals re­cently be­tween tech­nol­ogy com­pa­nies and au­tomak­ers.

Google has been work­ing on soft­ware and sen­sors since 2009 and has been test­ing au­ton­o­mous cars on pub­lic roads for years.
