Delphi may foray into ride hailing business

The news has been floating that Delphi may soon start its autonomous ride sharing service. The company has recently announced that after years of working in close collaboration with a number of partners on Self-driving technology, it will be demonstrating its own self-driving system in Consumer Electronics Show at Los Vegas next month. The system, the company says will be available for sale to the automakers. The ride-hailing service seems to be the next step for the company after this.

As per some news reports, the company has picked out one city each in US and Europe for its pilot program. After Uber and Lyft envisioned autonomous cars in ride-hailing service, many companies have forayed into this business. Ford and GM, have made significant moves in the ride-sharing world in the past year. Likes of BMW with Reach-now and VW with MOIA have already announced their plans regarding this business. It is also being reported that Google spinoff Waymo may also be planning a ride-share service with Fiat Chrysler. It seems Delphi has also hooked itself to this idea as it opens up a whole new market for the company.
