Waymo, the Google-owned, self-driving technology company, and Volvo Group have signed an exclusive global L4 partnership to build self-driving vehicles designed for ride-hailing use. A vehicle equipped with L4 technology would be able to perform all driving functions under certain conditions.
The two companies would first work to integrate the Waymo Driver, the self-driving technology into an all new mobility-focused electric vehicle platform for ride-hailing services. While Volvo will be designing and manufacturing the autonomous vehicles, Waymo will focus on artificial intelligence (AI) and custom design the hardware suite, software, and compute.
Waymo will also be working with other subsidiaries under Volvo Car Group, including electric performance brand Polestar and Lynk & Co. International.
