Self-driving cars seem like something that we can look forward to in the future. There is a lot of potential behind the technology, such as the potential to reduce accidents as computers should have faster reaction times than us, which means that avoiding obstacles and anticipating other drivers around us should be better.
That being said, if you are curious about what it might be like to take a ride in a self-driving vehicle, you might be interested to learn that Motional, a joint venture between Aptiv and Hyundai, and Lyft will be launching a fully driverless robotaxi service in major US cities in the year 2023.
We know, that’s still quite a ways to go but it could be something to look forward to. Motional and Lyft have been working together for the past few years, and what started out as a weeklong pilot program to test self-driving cars using Lyft’s network has since grown and expanded over the past few years.
According to Motional President and CEO Karl Iagnemma, “This agreement is a testament to our global leadership in driverless technology. We’re at the frontier of transportation innovation, moving robotaxis from research to road. Our aim is to not only build safe, reliable, and accessible driverless vehicles, but to deliver them at significant scale. We’re partnering with Lyft to do exactly that.”
