Lyft and its Boston-based partner nuTonomy, which builds self-driving software, announced Wednesday that the pilot project has begun.
"As the pilot progresses, select Boston passengers in Seaport area will be matched with nuTonomy self-driving vehicles when they request rides through the Lyft app", the companies said in a release. It will give some select consumers access to the sort of future-is-here experience of getting in a self-driving vehicle for two companies that seem to be relatively unknown in a market populated by Waymo and Uber, which are both looking to create a massive network of self-driving cars. Part of its objective is to get members of the public acquainted with self-driving cars, NuTonomy says in a press release, and based on their feedback "adapt and improve our system, so that we can deliver an autonomous transportation experience that is extremely safe, efficient, and comfortable". It's also testing autonomous taxis in Singapore.
Waymo announced that a portion of its fleet in the Phoenix area will operate in fully autonomous mode with the cars handling all the driving.
