Waymo teams with Avis for auto-cars

San Francisco: US car rental giant Avis Budget announced it will team up with Waymo on the self-driving cars being tested on Arizona roads.
The rental company said it would provide support and maintenance for Waymo, a subsidiary of Google-parent Alphabet, to keep the vehicles clean and mechanically ready to go.
The news came the same day as Bloomberg reported that department of motor vehicle documents showed iPhone-maker Apple is renting a small number of Lexus sport-utility vehicles from US car rental service Hertz to test self-driving software and sensors. — AFP
