Lyft's Jody Kelman on collaborating to launch autonomous vehicle technology

Self-driving technology providers were looking for riders — and Lyft had a network of customers looking for rides. The collaboration made sense to Jody Kelman, director of self-driving platforms at Lyft, which has launched trials in cities across the U.S. Collecting research on the space, the decisions necessary and implementing them has been a collective effort, but one that's driving a "revolution." "We really want to be pushing people into these shared electric self-driving cars, not advancing another generation of individual car ownership," she said.
