Aptiv launches fleet of autonomous vehicles on the Lyft network
Aptiv announced the launch of a fleet of 30 autonomous vehicles in Las Vegas on the Lyft network.
A product of Aptiv's Mobility and Services group, these vehicles will operate on Aptiv's autonomous driving platform and be made available to the public in partnership with Lyft. On an opt-in basis, passengers will have the ability to hail a self-driving vehicle equipped with Aptiv technology to and from high-demand locations.
This partnership is a multiyear agreement between the two companies. Both companies will leverage Aptiv's connected service capabilities and Lyft's ride-hailing experience to provide insights on self-driving fleet operations and management.
"With Aptiv's autonomous driving technology deployed throughout Las Vegas and broadly accessible through the Lyft app, a wide range of consumers will be able to share the experience of autonomous vehicles in a complex urban environment," said Kevin Clark, Aptiv President and Chief Executive Officer. "More importantly, the resulting knowledge and data will allow us to further refine our autonomous driving capabilities and strengthen our portfolio of industry-leading active safety solutions."
Aptiv autonomous vehicles on the Lyft network became available to the general public in Las Vegas on May 3.
