Created by former MIT faculty, researchers, and graduates, self-driving car startup nuTonomy has been getting autonomous cars on roads from Boston to Singapore, where it has been providing autonomous taxis since 2016. NuTonomy has also partnered with Group PSA, owner of European car brand Peugeot SA, to bring self-driving SUVs to Singapore. In June 2017, nuTonomy teamed up with Lyft to figure out how autonomous vehicles work in practice, whether they're put toward ride sharing or personal ownership. The two companies began rolling out the fruits of their labor in late 2017 with a self-driving car pilot in parts of Boston. NuTonomy’s high-profile successes caught the attention of car-part supplier Delphi Automotive, which acquired the startup in October 2017 for $450 million. The move beefs up Delphi’s self-driving car mission and gives nuTonomy more scale through Delphi’s resources and distribution.
