Big news of the day is that supplier Delphi Automotive will be launching a self-driving taxi service in Singapore in 2017. The service will start along fixed routes and evolve into a go-anywhere service by 2019.
This is big news for a couple of reasons.
This is faster than most people expected self-driving cars to launch, even accounting for the fact that Singapore is a pretty small geofenced area.
Delphi is a Tier 1 supplier that derives substantially all of its revenue from sales to OEMs like GM and Ford.
