GERMANY

Daimler and Bosch today announced a collaboration aimed at delivering autonomous cars to the market as soon as possible.

The pair plan to develop the software and algorithms needed to produce a reliable system. It would be used to transform the urban transport network. Instead of getting in your car smartphone users would summon a driverless shared car to a specific area of a city.

It is hoped this would ease pressure on busy roads and help increase the popularity of car sharing in a move ultimately designed to shape the traffic of the future.

The two say they want this service on the road by the start of the 2020s.
