5 companies form coalition to bring self-driving cars to market quicker

Posted on April 28, 2016

NEW YORK — Reuters reports that Google, Ford Motor Co., Uber, Volvo Cars and Lyft are forming the Self-Driving Coalition for Safer Streets to push for federal action to help speed self-driving cars to market.

The group said in a statement it will "work with lawmakers, regulators and the public to realize the safety and societal benefits of self-driving vehicles." David Strickland, the former top official of the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, will serve as the coalition’s counsel and spokesman.

Strickland, who has advised Google on self-driving car issues, said the group is "a full policy and messaging campaign and movement" and not just about lobbying lawmakers or regulators. For the full story, click here.
