Self-driving car development firm Waymo has inked a deal with ride-hailing service Lyft to bring autonomous vehicle technology to the public.The unexpected partnership promises “pilot projects and product development efforts,” according to The New York Times, which first reported the new tie-up.“We are partnering with Waymo to safely and responsibly launch self-driving vehicle pilots,” a Lyft spokeswoman confirmed in an email to Geek. “Waymo holds today’s self-driving technology, and collaborating with them will accelerate our shared vision of improving lives with the world’s best transportation.”Two years after unveiling its first fully functional self-driving car, Google in December spun off its autonomous vehicle project into a new division.“Waymo stands for a new way forward in mobility,” CEO John Krafcik said at the time. “We’re a self-driving technology company with a mission to make it safe and easy for people and things to move around.”Just not at the hands of an Uber driver.Waymo sued the app-based startup in February, alleging that former Google engineer Anthony Levandowski stole proprietary technology before leaving to found Otto, which Uber later acquired.A judge on Monday rejected Waymo’s request to halt Uber’s self-driving research, but ruled that Levandowski can’t work on any LiDAR-related projects.Despite this very public fight, Waymo remains committed to autonomous tech and believes Lyft is the perfect partner to make that dream a reality.“We’re looking forward to working with Lyft to explore new self-driving products that will make our roads safer and transportation more accessible,” a Waymo spokeswoman said. “Lyft’s vision and commitment to improving the way cities move will help Waymo’s self-driving technology reach more people, in more places.”Each firm comes with its own partnerships: Waymo is working with Fiat Chrysler on a fleet of minivans, while Lyft is working with GM to test autonomous Chevy Bolt vehicles.In 2015, Google completed its first fully self-driving car ride, when one of its prototype vehicles chauffeured Steve Mahan, who is legally blind, through Austin.“The ability to complete a fully self-driven trip on everyday public roads, with no test driver, was a big milestone for our team and the history of this technology,” Krafcik said last year. “It was the signal that we could begin to shift our focus from foundational technical work towards launching our own company so we can offer many more rides, in more places, for more people.”Editor’s Note: This story was updated at 12:50 p.m. Eastern with comments from Waymo and Lyft.
Bengaluru, July 23: Amid late Monday night drama in the Karnataka Assembly, Speaker KR Ramesh Kumar directed Chief Minister HD Kumaraswamy to face floor test on Tuesday by 6 pm to prove majority in the House. “I am adjourning the House nearly at midnight to meet again on Tuesday at 10 am for concluding the debate on the confidence motion by 4 pm and holding the floor test by 6 pm,” Kumar told the members and left the Assembly premises in a huff.

When the former Chief Minister said the ruling allies would complete the debate by 6 pm for the floor test by 8 pm on Tuesday, but the Speaker advanced the trust vote by 6 pm and to end the debate by 4 pm. Advertise With Us The Chief Minister moved the confidence motion on July 18 to prove majority after the 14-month fledgling JDS-Congress coalition government was reduced to minority following the resignation of 15 rebel legislators of the ruling combine and withdrawal of support by two Independents in the 225-member Assembly, including one nominated without voting right. Earlier, a tense Kumaraswamy beseeched the Speaker to allow two more days to face the floor test after his reply to the motion. “In view of the fast-changing circumstances since July 19 and a few petitions coming up in the Supreme Court on Tuesday for hearing and ruling on issues concerning our parties and the state, we request you to defer the floor test to Wednesday,” Kumaraswamy told the Speaker. The Chief Minister alleged that a fake letter of his resignation with his forged signature, addressed to state Governor Vajubhai Vala, has been circulating in the social media like WhatsApp, Twitter and Facebook since late evening when he was in the Assembly. “I don’t know who is so desperate for my resignation that a fake letter was prepared with my forged signature and shared in the social media. It also made it to the print and electronic media, which brought it to my office’s notice. This mischief needs to be investigated to find out who all are behind this,” Kumaraswamy told the Speaker in Kannada. Even as the ruling members were on their feet for adjourning the session, Kumaraswamy and Deputy Chief Minister G Parameshwara left the House quietly, as they left the debate on the motion to the Speaker. Congress state president Dinesh Gundu Rao said the top court has listed for hearing on Tuesday the petitions filed by his party, JD-S, chief minister and two independents on issues pertaining to the coalition government, the trust vote, the July 17 interim order of the three-judge bench, saying the 15 rebel legislators who resigned cannot be compelled to attend the session for the floor test and the Governor’s three messages to the chief minister to prove his majority on July 17 and July 18. With the 15 rebels, including 12 of the Congress and 3 of the JDS deciding not to attend the session and the two Congress legislators (B Nagendra and Srimant Patil) admitted in Bengaluru and Mumbai private hospitals, the strength of the allies in the House was 99 (65 out of 79 of the Congress plus 34 out of 37 of the JDS), including the Speaker (from Congress) in the 225-member Assembly. With the two Independents supporting the BJP, which has 105 legislators, 107 votes will be against the motion in the division of votes vis-a-vis 100 of the ruling combine, including N Mahesh of the Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP). “The voting takes place on the basis of the members present in the House. But, with only 100 members on his side, Kumaraswamy will inevitably face defeat when the motion will be put to vote, as the new halfway mark will be 105 out of 208 (225-17),” BJP spokesman G. Madhusudana told IANS here.
