Toyota, Qualcomm join self-driving advisory group

Nissan, Hyundai, others (but not Google, Tesla) to talk safety standards

The advisory group will look into the implications of self-driving technology for public transit and the insurance industry.

TOKYO -- Toyota Motor and U.S. chipmaker Qualcomm are among the 27 companies forming a global advisory group to bring self-driving technology onto the road.

The group aims to nudge the private sector into establishing safety standards and other rules for varying degrees of autonomous driving. The World Economic Forum, which formed a working committee in May to discuss the future of self-driving cars, had called for such an initiative.
