Google Has Scaled Back Self-Driving Car Ambitions

Citing the usual "people familiar with the situation" sources, The Information claims that Google has backed away from its self-driving bubble cars in favor of a partnership with an established automaker.

Alphabet has backed off plans to develop a revolutionary car without a steering wheel or pedals, at least for now, according to people close to the closely-watched project. Instead, the self-driving car pioneer has settled on a more practical effort to partner with automakers to make a vehicle that drives itself but has traditional features for human drivers.
