Ride-sharing companies set to change in the autonomous world

It will be interesting to see how autonomous cars will change the game for ride-sharing companies like Uber and Lyft, according CBS Insights.

Uber is already developing its own autonomous fleet, though it is unclear whether it will be better at producing cars than major manufacturers such as BMW or tech companies like Google who have been working in their own autonomous car for longer; and Lyft is partnering with General Motors to build its own fleet.

Uber would not need to pay drivers anymore in an autonomous world, but it might have to still have the costs of owning a car, something that now is held by third-party contractors.

It is entirely possible that the hardware aspect of driverless cars will quickly become standardized, since the cars will be less dependent on mechanical components than they are now.
