Yandex Looking To Move Into Motoring

Russia's largest search engine, Yandex, has agreed a deal with Toyota Motor Corp. As the car technology industry grows, with both Apple and Google looking into new motoring designs, Yandex has agreed to supply some new Toyota models with real-time traffic information and internet browsing capabilities. Andrey Strelkov, head of geolocation services at Yandex, said that “cars are set to become the new generation of connected devices”, adding that the plan was to stake a claim early, in an industry that would be worth “billions of dollars in the future”. The company also confirmed that it will soon provide mapping, voice and computer-vision technology to a Russian truck building company.
