Tierr@_de_N@die: Amazon doesn't want to miss the train. The market around self-driving cars and autonomous ride-hailing vehicles will be huge and no big company can keep apart.
Amazon has signed an agreement to acquire Zoox, a California-based company working to design autonomous ride-hailing vehicles from the ground up. Aicha Evans, Zoox CEO, and Jesse Levinson, Zoox co-founder and CTO, will continue to lead the team as they innovate and drive towards their mission.
