Volvo and Ford are back at it again as the duo announced on a new collaboration to develop an autonomous system that is safe, practical and efficient for the near future. Well, it is not just Volvo and Ford that is in the same page right now.

The two carmakers have allied with Google, Uber and Lyft. This means that the project will also see the development of autonomous taxis turning into fruition in the near future. This is quite a powerful alliance as both Volvo and Ford are veterans in the automotive industry.

In addition to that, Google has got the tech resources such as Google Maps while Uber & Lyft will know what is needed to make autonomous road ferrying service work.

At this rate, we can expect a prototype autonomous taxi to get unveiled in a year from now and the whole project could bear fruits before 2020.
