Lyft Waymo Col­lab­o­ra­tion May Rule the Field of Au­ton­o­mous Ve­hi­cles

Industry Leaders - - Latest in Business -

Au­ton­o­mous ve­hi­cles and its de­vel­op­ment has be­come more of a trend than just a tech­no­log­i­cal ad­vance­ment these days. This race of the au­to­mo­bile mar­ket is on a rage and ev­i­dently prom­i­nent au­tomak­ers are now team­ing up with the Sil­i­con Val­ley ex­perts. The lat­est col­lab­o­ra­tion for au­ton­o­mous ve­hi­cle de­vel­op­ment is the Lyft-waymo col­lab­o­ra­tion. Why does this seem to be a promis­ing merger? Well, both the par­ties in­volved are re­ally good at their re­spec­tive jobs and this makes their part­ner­ship stronger.

Not only the abil­i­ties of both the com­pa­nies, it can be seen that that these two par­ties also have ad­e­quate fi­nan­cial sup­port. Al­pha­bet is the par­ent com­pany of Waymo, the self- driv­ing seg­ment of Google. Waymo will col­lab­o­rate with Lyft, the ride-hail­ing app. In a re­port pub­lished in the New York Times, both these com­pa­nies con­firmed the news.

This part­ner­ship will give a medium to Waymo’s self-driv­ing tech­nol­ogy. While for the ride-hail­ing com­pany, it won’t have to de­velop self­driv­ing cars from the scratch, but just in­cul­cate the tech­nol­ogy pro­vided by Waymo. So, this will be­come a win­win sit­u­a­tion for both the com­pa­nies, who have de­clined to de­clare the fi­nan­cial de­tails of the deal.

If all goes well, this col­lab­o­ra­tion might re­sult in these two com­pa­nies rul­ing the self-driv­ing sec­tor.
