Udacity, Tier IV tie up in driverless car development

To help develop a new autonomous vehicle, contestant ideas will be tested using Udacity's Lincoln MKZ.

NAGOYA, Japan -- U.S. online education provider Udacity will partner with Tier IV, a Nagoya-based developer of autonomous vehicle technology, to build a new self-driving car, employing a public idea contest.

Udacity is the brainchild of President Sebastian Thrun, an expert in artificial intelligence and developer of self-driving cars when he was with Google. The company has expanded its training programs for software developers and the like, including one especially for driverless car engineers.
