For months now there have been periodic reports of the race to put self-driving taxis on the road in Singapore.

First nuTonomy, then Delphi, said they were imminent.

Today ReadWrite reports that nuTonomy is partnering with a ride-sharing company called Grab, which I take it is an Uber competitor in Asia.

I’ve never heard of Grab before, but perhaps they are big in Singapore?

I presume it was a big win for them to get the nuTonomy partnership, but I wish I knew more. Does this make them an Uber-level competitor now? Or is it all press and no substance?

I’ll keep an eye out, but let me help me out if you live in that part of the world and know more.
