Google gives up on in-house-designed self-driving car
Google was one of the pioneering companies when it came to developing self-driving cars. Alas, the company has given up on the tiny steering-wheel-less Google car for more practical ventures.
Instead, Google’s parent company, Alphabet, is looking to partner with big car manufacturers for traditional-looking vehicles that would incorporate Google’s self-driving car technology, reports Tech Radar.
A formal announcement from Google is expected to be made about the exit of the experimental car from Google X lab and entry into the mother company.
Another announcement could also be made with regards to the Fiat Chrysler-Google deal, which may see ride-sharing autonomous vehicles go up against Uber Ford and other firms. Alfred Bayle
