Ford, Google And Uber Create Self-Driving Car Coalition

Posted on April 27, 2016

Google, Uber, Ford and others are coming together to promote the interests of self-driving vehicles, according to a Reuters report.

The coalition's aim is to urge government action on self-driving vehicles, specifically to cut through the patchwork autonomous-driving laws that differ wildly from state to state.

Driverless cars are being developed by numerous companies. Proponents say self-driving tech has the potential to be much safer than standard human driving, though policymakers are likely to have many concerns about the implications of letting a machine take the wheel.
