Honda is using Chevies to design self-driving cars in Japan

Quote:
[Honda] signed a memorandum of understanding with two Japanese transportation providers to work toward an autonomous taxi service in Tokyo.
Quote:
Honda plans to use the Cruise Origin for its mobility services. The vehicle, developed jointly with General Motors, is designed to provide autonomous taxi services. It lacks a steering wheel, pedals, and other components that a human needs to drive a car, creating a space that Cruise says is "an experience purely designed around the rider."
Quote:
The automaker is using a fleet of Chevy Bolts to create high-definition maps of defined areas in certain cities. Once mapping is complete, the autonomous tax[i] vehicles can begin testing for safety and performance.

Not the first time that Honda resorts to a GM product. Euro-spec versions of the Civic once relied on an Opel-made, Isuzu-designed turbodiesel engine.

Back on topic: even though Japanese people are quite strict and disciplined, I'd still take the autonomous vehicle deal with a grain of salt, as there is always some greater risk for a fully-autonomous land vehicle than for some major airliner routes.
