Google is talking to auto makers about how to bring its self-driving-car technology to market, executives said Tuesday.

Project director Chris Urmson said a self-driving car is probably still six years away. But, he added, “We are thinking now about how to bring this car to market.” He and others said Google hasn’t decided whether to design its own car, or make its software and operating system available to auto makers. “We’re trying to figure that out now,” Urmson said. He said Google is talking regularly to auto makers, without citing specific names.
