Toyota and Uber have announced that they are extending their collaboration agreement in the autonomous auto realm.

The deal will see Toyota invest $500 million into Uber.

Uber plans to integrate its self-driving tech alongside the Toyota Guardian technology in vehicles built specifically for the Uber ride-sharing network.

Toyota and Uber want to bring autonomous ride-sharing to the masses at scale.

Toyota and Uber have agreed that the vehicles using the tech in the collaboration will be owned and operated by mutually agreed on third party autonomous fleet operators.

Uber CEO Dara Khosrowshahi says that the goal of the collaboration is to deploy the “world’s safest” self-driving cars on the Uber network.
