At the end of last year, it looked like Uber's self-driving cars were done for good when autonomous vehicle tech startup Aurora took over its robocars unit as part of a $400 million deal. But now Aurora is reviving a driverless ride-hailing service. Aurora announced Tuesday that by the end of this year it'll design, build, and start testing a fleet of self-driving Toyota Sienna minivans. The cars will be equipped with the Aurora Driver autonomous system through another partnership with automotive parts supplier Denso. While Aurora has previously tested on Chrysler Pacifica minivans, this will be the first fleet of autonomous Siennas.
