Google is planning to team up with automakers and suppliers to accelerate its self-driving car project.
Google self-driving car project head John Krafcik told the Detroit auto that the company is interested to team up with automakers.
The company previously said that it does not intend to build vehicles, but supply the software and mapping technology to facilitate the creation of cars that can safely navigate through busy streets and highways.
Delphi Automotive Plc, Continental AG and Mobileye are some of the companies trying to create vehicles that use machine vision as well as maps and artificial intelligence.
The announcement comes when Apple is also being speculated about building EVs, and the company has already registered domain names like apple.car, apple.cars and apple.auto.
