无人驾驶:丰田以720亿美元估值向Uber投资5亿美元
作者:admin 发布于:2018-11-05 13:22

丰田和Uber在无人驾驶领域的合作将进一步深化。
 
The cooperation between TOYOTA and Uber in the driverless area will be further deepened.
 
 
 
8月28日,路透社援引知情人士消息称,日本丰田汽车公司将以720亿美元的估值向共享出行巨头Uber投资5亿美元,共同开发无人驾驶汽车。Uber的自动驾驶系统将与丰田的“Guardian”驾驶辅助系统结合,再整合到丰田的Sienna小型面包车中,自2021年开始部署在Uber的打车服务网络上。
 
On August 28, Reuters quoted people familiar with the situation as saying that Toyota Motor Co. of Japan will invest $500 million in the development of driverless cars with a valuation of $72 billion to Uber, a travel-sharing giant. Uber's autopilot system will be integrated with TOYOTA's "Guardian" driver assistance system, and then integrated into TOYOTA's Sienna minibus. Since 2021, it has been deployed on Uber's taxi service network.
 
 
 
报道指出,此次投资将深化两家公司的合作关系,同时反映出Uber首席执行官Dara Khosrowshahi对待无人驾驶的新策略,即通过与合作伙伴携手,共同开发无人驾驶汽车,而非单打独斗。
 
The investment will deepen the partnership between the two companies, reflecting Uber CEO Dara Khosrowshahi's new strategy toward driverless driving, which is to develop driverless cars together with partners rather than fighting alone, the report said.
 
 
 
Uber和丰田此前在无人驾驶技术和其他方面已有过合作。2016年5月,丰田宣布投资Uber,同时为Uber的司机提供一项租车的服务。今年2月,Uber CEO Khosrowshahi在个人推特透露,自己与丰田汽车公司总裁丰田章男等人会面,双方讨论了在无人驾驶领域扩大合作相关事宜。
 
Uber and TOYOTA have worked together in driverless technology and other areas. In May 2016, TOYOTA announced its investment in Uber, providing a rental service for Uber drivers. In February this year, Uber CEO Khosrowshahi revealed on Twitter that he met with Toyota Motor President Akio Toyoda and others to discuss expanding cooperation in the field of driverless driving.
 
 
 
 
 
Uber在发展无人驾驶技术的道路上并不顺利。Uber曾长期陷入与谷歌旗下无人驾驶初创公司Waymo之间的官司中,直到今年2月,Uber才与Waymo达成和解协议,协议结果是,Uber将向Alphabet支付(Uber公司)0.34%的股份作为赔偿,约合2.45亿美元。
 
Uber is not going well in the development of driverless technology. Uber was involved in a long-standing lawsuit with Waymo, Google's driverless startup, until February this year, when Uber reached a settlement with Waymo, which resulted in Uber paying Alphabet 0.34% of its shares, or about $245 million.
 
 
 
Uber无人驾驶技术的安全性目前仍然遭到质疑。今年3月,一辆Uber无人驾驶汽车在美国亚利桑那州发生严重事故,撞到一位路人致其死亡。随后,亚利桑那州暂停了Uber公司的自动驾驶车辆测试计划。
 
The safety of Uber driverless technology is still being questioned. In March, a Uber driverless car crashed into a passer-by in Arizona, USA, killing him. Subsequently, Arizona suspended Uber's automated driving vehicle test plan.
 
 
 
更让Uber头疼的是,研发无人驾驶技术成为导致公司大幅亏损的主要原因。本月,The Information援引知情人士说法称,投资者已建议Uber出售其自动驾驶汽车部门,在过去18个月中,该部门每季度亏损高达1.25亿至2亿美元,占公司季度亏损额的15%-30%。Uber的财报显示,公司今年二季度出现8.91亿美元的巨额亏损。
 
What makes Uber headache is that the development of driverless technology has become the main reason for the company's heavy losses. This month, The Information quoted people familiar with the matter as saying that investors had advised Uber to sell its autopilot motor sector. In the past 18 months, the sector suffered quarterly losses of 125 million to 200 million US dollars, accounting for 15%-30% of the company's quarterly losses. Uber's earnings report showed that the company suffered a huge loss of 891 million US dollars in the two quarter of this year.
 
 
 
面对“烧钱”的无人驾驶业务,Uber首席执行官Khosrowshahi开始探索新的发展策略,包括寻找更多合作伙伴共同开发。在今年7月的一次会议上,Khosrowshahi公开表示,Uber“完全开放业务,我们正在与其他合作伙伴进行积极讨论。”
 
Faced with the "burning money" driverless business, Uber CEO Khosrowshahi began to explore new development strategies, including looking for more partners to develop together. At a meeting in July this year, Khosrowshahi publicly stated that Uber was "fully open to business and we are actively discussing with other partners."
