Self-driving cars are much closer than most people suspect. It is a game-changing development. It also a big opportunity for investors.
Aptiv PLC is an offshoot of Delphi Automotive, the former General Motors subsidiary. The company now holds all the autonomous car bits and pieces that have been acquired throughout the years.
In 2015 Delphi bought Ottomatika, a self-driving car software startup. That business was spun out from Carnegie Mellon, a Pittsburgh school considered to be one of the premier robotics engineering institutions in the world.
In October 2017, Delphi acquired nuTonomy, another maker of self-driving software. It’s also the manager of a fleet of Singapore autonomous taxis.
Aptiv is building a significant advantage over its competition.
