Four months after Lyft opened a new self-driving car division, the ride-sharing service will be taking its autonomous cars to the streets of California.
Lyft joins a long list of companies that have been awarded permits for autonomous car testing—including Tesla, Mercedes Benz, Honda, Bosch, Ford, Apple, and Samsung—though, as the Verge notes, it’s unclear whether Lyft will use its propriety software and hardware. Lyft also has deals with Waymo and Ford to help with the process of getting self-driving vehicles into its fleet.
Uber, which defied the state last year by rolling out its self-driving cars in San Francisco despite not having the approval of the California DMV, is also on the list of companies with a permit.
As Mashable points out, Lyft will now have to give information to California, including reports on how many times a human driver had to take over an autonomous vehicle while in operation.
