Google reportedly teaming up with Ford to make self-driving cars

self-driving cars

Google’s self-driving car initiative has been getting a momentum over the past year, but it seems that it has huge news up its sleeve. According to various familiar sources, Google and Ford partnership will be developing self-driving cars. It is reported that Ford will announce the partnership at CES (Consumer Electronics Show) in Las Vegas. The exact details of partnership are still unknown as neither company has confirmed the partnership.

By teaming up with Google, Ford gets a huge leap in the autonomous vehicle market. While Ford has been experimenting with its own self-driving technology for years, it just declared this month that it was planning to begin testing on roads of California. However, Google already has 53 test vehicles on the road in Texas and California, with 1.3 million miles logged in autonomous driving.

Likewise, by pairing with Ford, Google would avoid investing thousands of dollars. Earlier, Google’s co-founder Sergey Brin declared that, “Google have no desire to produce cars in mass and would rather partner with some auto manufacturer for company’s self-driving cars.” Pairing with Ford, gives it a partner with a lot of experience and sources to manufacture cars, so it can avoid investing in the materials and spending several years for developing cars independently.
