Waymo and the FCA entered into an expanded deal that will also include self-driving Ram vans, specifically the Ram ProMaster van. As part of the agreement, Wamo will make FCA an exclusive partner for level 4 autonomous commercial vans. The two organizations initially started working together in 2016.
Mike Manly, the CEO of FCA, spoke about the new partnership agreement, “Adding Waymo’s commitment to partner with us to deploy its L4 fully autonomous technology across our entire product portfolio, our partnership is setting the pace for the safe and sustainable mobility solutions that will help define the automotive world in the years and decades to come.”
Overall the agreement could set a precedent for future agreements between autonomous technology companies and clients.
