Uber considers Waymo partnership following lawsuit

by John_A

Now that Waymo’s long-running lawsuit against Uber is finally settled, the two companies are free to cozy up to a possible partnership. According to a report at The Information, Uber executives, led by new CEO Dara Khosrowshahi, have been looking for a way to get Uber riders into Waymo’s autonomous cars.

Even though Waymo is already collaborating with Lyft, a working relationship with Uber would likely help the Google-owned autonomous car division get more of its self-driving cars on the road. Uber would be able to stay competitive with its largest rival, too, without falling too far behind in the public consciousness. There’s no indication, says The Information, that Waymo is ready to make a deal, however. Still, CEO Khosrowshahi is aware that Waymo’s self-driving systems are more advanced than Uber’s own, the site’s sources note, and would benefit from working with the Alphabet company.
