Updated May 14, 2018 11:08:38 Google has announced its search engine integration for auto parts warehouses, a move that could help boost sales and profitability.
The company said the technology will allow for automated sales and logistics across a range of services, from vehicle sales to inventory management.
Google’s announcement on Monday came a day after it launched its own autonomous vehicle platform, Google Auto, which offers auto-related services including navigation, car repair, and logistics.
In a blog post, the search engine giant said it will begin testing self-driving car technology this year and that it has invested $1.2 billion into autonomous driving research.
It also announced plans to use the technology to automate shipping.
Automation of warehouse and supply chain operations will be a key part of the company’s search engine strategy.
“Today, we are excited to bring Google Auto to millions of retailers, service providers, and consumers,” said Google CEO Sundar Pichai.
“It will be part of our business strategy for the next few years.”
Google Auto will allow users to access an auto parts warehouse directly in Google Search.
It will also allow customers to find nearby suppliers and customers through the company.
The Google Search engine will also integrate a variety of services that are currently available through the mobile apps, such as delivery, grocery shopping, and customer reviews.
The integration is not Google’s first foray into autonomous vehicle technology.
Google has previously launched a Google Home assistant and an automated shopping cart.
But the new integration with the auto parts industry is the first to use Google’s own technology, according to the company in a blog.
It’s a significant move that will be particularly beneficial to consumers, Pichay wrote.
“This is a major step in Google’s commitment to be the leading search engine for the automotive industry, and will give our consumers the ability to shop from a variety and variety of products on Google,” he wrote.
