Uber, Toyota team up on self-driving cars
SAN FRANCISCO (AP) － Uber is teaming up with Toyota to build self-driving cars for its ride-hailing service after its efforts to do it alone were derailed by a fatal collision.
Toyota is investing $500 million in Uber as part of the alliance announced on Aug. 27.
The deal aims to combine the best features from the companies' work on autonomous technology into cars that will pick up Uber's customers by 2021.
Uber is counting on self- driving cars to help it turn the financial corner by reducing the need to pay human drivers who arrive to pick up passengers in private vehicles summoned through the smartphone app.
Toyota is trying to change from being a pure automobile maker to being a "mobility com-pany," as are many of its industry peers, including General Motors and Ford in the U.S.
