The aim is to work towards the creation of the fleets which would be available in few of the cities on demand.

Even companies like Tesla as well as Google have also been working on AI based technology for developing autonomous vehicles
Well looking into the self-driving vehicles horizon, there is Waymo which was earlier the Google company autonomous program which is being headed by the Urmson. It has also been offering some similar kind of the technology. Waymo has also been working with the Fiat Chrysler from the year 2016 to integrate the Chrysler Pacifica minivans with the self driving autonomous technology.
