Google’s Waymo is planning to license their self-driving technology to automakers and trucking companies, rather than actually manufacture cars like in the video above. Fiat Chrysler is the first deal with 100 minivans for testing, not for selling.

Google has been a company that’s long been at the forefront of autonomous vehicles, and it doubled the number of cities it’s testing in to four. Earlier this month, it spun off its self-driving car project as Waymo, an independent company under the umbrella of Alphabet, after it “graduated” Google X, the moonshot factory, with more than a million miles of autonomous driving.

 

Waymo revealed its Chrysler self-driving vans in December. They will be on the road in 2017.
