Looks like Google is moving on with its self-driving automobile concept. A recent report has suggested that the Mountain View company has finally decided to make its self-driving cars by itself.

You might remember recent rumors that suggested that the tech giant was in talks with many major automakers regarding the possibilities of self-driving cars. But Google failed in this attempt, as almost every carmaker rejected the idea.

Meanwhile, the new report also suggests that Google is looking to introduce some kind of “robo-taxi” service, which would automatically pick up the passengers on demand.

Right now, it is unclear that whether Google itself would run the service or via any other company. However, Google’s self-driving vehicle needs a human behind the wheel in case of emergencies.

According to Amir Efrati, Google had talks with Magna International and Continental AG, which is one of the world’s largest auto parts suppliers. A German newspaper also reported that Google and Continental are close to a deal to build self-driving cars that Google is planning.

A few other rumors also suggest that Google is trying to convince major car brands into developing autonomous-navigation tech.
