Miller saidUber plans to have autonomous cars back on public streets by the end of the year. However, this partnership is unique as the vehicles won't be owned or operated by either company.
Further details of the deal were not available, and the person briefed on the matter declined to be identified because an official release hasn't been issued. Toyota has also had a partnership earlier with Uber. The partnership deepens an existing relationship and reflects Chief Executive Dara Khosrowshahi's strategy of Uber developing autonomous vehicles through partnerships, rather than on its own.
Toyota's idea is to develop fully autonomous cars to serve an aging population and the disabled as well as work on technology for regular production cars that could switch between assisted and full autonomy. A group of investors had valued Uber at $62 billion earlier this year.
Toyota expects to develop its Sienna minivans with this fusion of technologies and Uber will run them and the scheduled launch is by 2021. "We knew we couldn't do it alone, which is why we continue to partner with world-class vehicle manufacturers to make our vision a reality".
Uber will combine its autonomous driving system with Toyota's Guardian technology, which offers automated safety features such as lane-keeping but does not enable a vehicle to drive completely autonomously.
Uber suspended its self-driving vehicle testing in the Phoenix area, Pittsburgh, San Francisco and Toronto.
A top executive for the maker of Lidar sensors used on Uber's self-driving auto said she was "baffled" as to why the vehicle failed to recognise Ms Herzberg. And the deal with Toyota becomes a third pillar, where Uber licenses its technology. Over that time, the company's share price has seen more ups and downs than a typical privately held company. It may be recalled that Uber had to shut down its self-driven cars project in Arizona following an accident with one of its self-driven cars hitting a pedestrian and killing her. Uber had deactivated Volvo's automatic braking system in that vehicle, which raised questions about safety.
