Uber today announced it has signed a deal to have Daimler supply and operate its own self-driving cars on Uber’s ride sharing network services.
“Auto manufacturers like Daimler are crucial to our strategy because Uber has no experience making cars — and in fact, making cars is really hard. This became very clear to me after I visited an auto manufacturing plant and saw how much effort goes into designing, testing and building cars,” Travis Kalanick, CEO and co-founder of the peer-to-peer ridesharing service said in a blog. “That’s why instead of building them ourselves, we want to partner with the best auto manufacturers in the world.”
