John Krafcik, the CEO of Google’s self-driving cars, mentioned this Tuesday that Google will look to work with more established automobile companies and suppliers in order to speed up their work schedule.
Krafcik, who appeared at the press conference of the Detroit Auto Show, said that he hopes to work with many of the companies in the automotive industry.
Company’s primary target is not to manufacture cars, but instead to provide the software and the road maps in order for a car to navigate safely on busy streets and highways. However, Google has already made a small fleet of autonomous vehicles prototypes.
Meanwhile, a company spokesman confirmed that Clay Bavor, who is responsible for Google’s product Management team, took over as Head for the company’s new department of Virtual Reality, based on his twitter profile.
As Vice President for the Product Management, he supervised some of Google’s fundamental applications, such as Gmail, Google Drive and Google Docs.
