Delphi, Transdev to Develop Self-driving Transport Service in Europe

In a joint statement, Delphi and Transdev said they will test driverless vehicles in Normandy and outside Paris, in advance of building a commercial service, starting in 2019, that could be deployed in other markets, including North America. It would be the first such commercial application on public roads of fully automated vehicles, they said. The Delphi-Transdev partnership will provide “a clear path to commercializing automated mobility on demand,” said Glen De Vos, Delphi’s chief technology officer, in a media briefing.
