Google is seeking to partner with major car makers and component giants in the hope to bring its autonomous car to market, probably by the end of the decade.
Companies the web search giant is talking to include GM, Ford, Toyota, Daimler and VW, according to news agency Reuters. Google has so far not named any car makers, but admitted it is approaching companies with established reputations with expertise in building vehicles for commercial sale.
‘At some point, we’re going to be looking to find partners to build complete vehicles, and bring the technology to market,’ Chris Urmson, head of the project.
But first it will rely on smaller experts to develop and produce the prototypes which will continue to be tested for the next five years.
