Google to Partner with Automakers to Build Self-Driving Cars

Google and Ford will create a joint venture to build self-driving vehicles with Google’s technology, a move toward a new business of automated ride sharing, according to this article at Yahoo Autos.

The article states, "The deal is understood to be non-exclusive; Google has been talking to several other automakers for some time about using its self-driving systems. Most major automakers and several auto parts suppliers are developing their own self-driving controls as well, with a few—Nissan, Volvo and Mercedes-Benz among them—promising advanced vehicles for customer sales by 2020."
