What's the point of this partnership?

Why don't you ask all those South Korean technology companies that are scrambling to come up with their own materials now that they're worried Japan won't supply them?

I bet they wish they teamed up at home to come up with their own technology in the first place too.

But Toyota and Suzuki are the dumb ones... Ha.

^ If you try to do it yourself, you will learn the know-how. If you partner with another company, chances are very high that certain technologies will not be released to the partner(s). With your own knowledge, you can further evolve from that. It will take longer time, but the rewards would be greater.

The point is in the title.

Both suck at self-driving technology.

What makes you say this? It's just a sour opinion. I wonder why.... South Korean car makers must wait for Japanese patents to expire to use their technology now, and self-driving tech is no different.

If Toyota partnered with a self-driving technology specialist like Waymo, Uber, Intel, GM's SuperCruise etc, I understand, but Suzuki?

You don't understand how Japan works. Instead of relying on outside expertise off the bat, they always try to develop technology at home first. If they can't progress they then look for outside partners. This has been the case for many decades, why don't you know this? Is it a feeble attempt to bash Japan again?
