Waymo, the self-driving car company owned by Google parent company Alphabet, has partnered with Honda in a deal which will see its autonomous car systems integrated into the Japanese car maker's vehicles.
The deal, which will allow the two companies to "learn about the integration of fully self-driving sensors, software and computers" is likely to see Honda provide test cars to Waymo as part of the company's fleet.
That fleet is currently testing in four US cities, and already includes 100 Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid MPVs from the Fiat Chrysler Group. It's unclear which vehicles Honda will provide, but upcoming models like the 2017 Civic and new CR-V are likely candidates.
As part of the agreement, Honda's engineers both in Silicon Valley, California and in Tochigi, Japan will work directly with Waymo's staff, based in California and Michigan.
