The corresponding agreement was signed today.

General Motors has partnered with Microsoft to develop an automatic driving system for its cars, according to published data. The total investment in the Cruise project from GM, Honda, Microsoft and other investors is reported to be more than $ 2 billion. Thus, the cost of the entire project is estimated at $ 30 billion.

Cruise autopilot will reportedly use the Azure cloud computing platform. This will allow you to achieve the highest possible speed and flexibility in making decisions by the vehicle’s autopilot. In addition, the companies will cooperate in the field of artificial intelligence.
