It’s no question that self-driving cars are the way of the future, as almost every company either associated with technology or cars is hoping on the autonomous vehicle game.
So, who’s the next company to purchase the one way train ticket into the future: Lyft.
Lyft Vice President of Engineering, Luc Vincent, announced in a blog post on Medium that the ride sharing company is opening its own self-driving division, which is developing an open self-driving system.
“This news builds on the announcement we made earlier this year, when we created the world’s first open self-driving platform. Lyft’s self-driving vehicles will operate on that network, alongside vehicles introduced by Lyft partners. In the years ahead, we will continue to bring the world’s leading automotive and technology companies onto this single platform to serve a nationwide passenger network. And together, we will continue to drive toward a single, shared objective: to build the world’s best transportation ecosystem.”
Uber is SHOOK.
