Japanese firms get together to develop self-driving vehicles.

Japanese carrier NTT DoCoMo and internet services company DeNA announced a partnership to develop self-driving cars. The first road tests with self-driving busses are planned to take place still this year.

The goal is to market the autonomous driving system to car makers. NTT DoCoMo's 5G LTE technology is playing a key role in the self-driving car solution according to a report on Japanese Nikkei. DoCoMo plans to roll out the 100x faster 5G technology by 2020 in Japan.

Self-driving cars are set to be our future. I will hold on to my steering wheel as long as I can. While Google and Tesla make the most headlines with their self-driving car developments, it is a technology that many companies are working on. Apple is one of them. All car makers are developing self-driving car technology.

Only time will tell which systems will be gaining the biggest market share.
