Uber looking to bring Waymo Driver-less cars

Uber CEO Dara Khosrowshahi hopes Alphabet’s Waymo will join his company’s car network.

Speaking at the Code Conference on Wednesday, Khosrowshahi said that Uber is “having discussions with Waymo” about the possibility of using its self-driving car technology for his own company’s ridesharing service. The feature would ostensibly mean autonomous vehicles-instead of cars with drivers in them-would be picking you up and driving you to your desired destinations. Recode earlier reported on his comments.

“Owning or being a part of the largest rideshare network on a global basis will enable you to get the highest utilization out of your autonomous cars,” Khosrowshahi said about his discussions with Waymo.

Alphabet’s Waymo has been working for years on self-driving car technology and is believed to be one of the leaders in that space. Uber is also working on self-driving cars, along with Apple, General Motors, and countless others.
