The U.S.-based printer maker bought a small stake in HP in recent weeks, the newspaper reported, citing sources. The stake would give Xerox the right to nominate directors for elections to be held at the HP's annual meeting this summer, the report said, adding that the deadline to nominate directors is Friday, and Xerox could still decide to not follow through with the nominations. In November last year, Xerox made the $33.5 billion cash-and-stock offer to HP, a company more than three times its size.
Cruise, the self-driving unit of General Motors, unveiled its first autonomous electric vehicle, claiming it could be built “at roughly half the cost” of a conventional car. The minivan-like Origin was unveiled in San Francisco on Tuesday, and lacks pedals or a steering wheel and is designed for ride-pooling, allowing passengers to share vehicles. Cruise said the Origin — which the company was adamant was not a car — could help reduce traffic congestion, pollution and road deaths.
General Motors' self-driving car company will attempt to deliver on its long-running promise to provide a more environmentally friendly ride-hailing service in an unorthodox vehicle designed to eliminate the need for human operators to transport people around crowded cities. The service still being developed by GM's Cruise subsidiary will rely on a boxy, electric-powered vehicle called “Origin" that was unveiled late Tuesday in San Francisco amid much fanfare. It looks like a cross between a mini-van and sports utility vehicle with one huge exception — it won't have any steering wheel or brakes.
General Motors Co's self-driving car unit, Cruise, on Tuesday unveiled a prototype electric vehicle with no steering wheel or pedals for use in its planned autonomous ride-sharing service. The vehicle, named "Cruise Origin", was developed with Honda Motor Co Ltd , which took a minority stake in Cruise in 2018 in an effort to catch up with rivals in developing a technology with enormous costs and risk and no market-ready products. Cruise's Chief Executive Officer, Dan Ammann, said the boxy vehicle about the size of a large SUV with sliding doors on each side will be used for the company's own ride-hailing service, but did not say when the new competitor to Lyft Inc and Uber Technologies Inc would launch.
