One of Uber’s biggest rivals, Lyft, has confirmed its plans for developing self-driving cars as the next move for its business. The company’s VP of Engineering has announced on Medium that Lyft self-driving cars will be a major area that they will be focusing on and went on to elaborate on areas surrounding the future of Lyft’s self-driving car ideas. Interestingly, the company’s self-driving car system will be an open platform which will allow external developers to jump in and work on.

Lyft stated that; “To be clear, we aren’t thinking of our self-driving division as a side project. It’s core to our business. That’s why 10% of our engineers are already focused on developing self-driving technology — and we’ll continue to grow that team in the months ahead. Their efforts will be housed in a brand-new development facility in Palo Alto, which we are calling the Level 5 Engineering Center.”

The San Francisco-based firm recently published reports that highlighted the fact that there were 1 million rides per day – and this acts as a boost in confidence of the company’s expansion targets. Keeping things natural, Lyft is not planning to substitute its drivers for completely self-driving cars, as they still perceive the need for human drivers just in case.

Are you a fan of Lyft’s self-driving car plans? Or are you looking forward to Uber’s finished product instead?
