Google and Amazon are exploring a potential merger in robotics.
The two companies are discussing the possible merging of their robotics businesses to form a company called Husqvarna.
The move would give Google a more centralized position in the robotic field and potentially open the door to a merger between the two companies.
Google has long had a strong presence in robotics, having bought and developed robotics companies such as Autodesk and Kiva, among others.
But Google’s recent investments in robotics have slowed down, particularly as its robotics teams have struggled to find success in a rapidly changing field.
Google also faces competition from Amazon, which is investing heavily in its robotics business, including the acquisition of Amazon Robotics, and Facebook, which has invested in other robotics startups such as Amazon Go and Autodesks, among other ventures.
In the future, the robotics industry could become a competitive and lucrative field for both companies.
The Wall St. Journal reported this week that Google and Google X are looking at combining their robotics and software companies.
But Amazon and Facebook are not the only companies with robotics aspirations.
Google’s robotics ambitions are also backed by Facebook, where founder Mark Zuckerberg has said he wants to create a global community of robots.
Google currently has a partnership with SoftBank, a Japanese telecommunications company, that aims to bring robotics and artificial intelligence to a billion people.
But this is not the first time that Google has attempted to buy a robotics company.
In 2014, Google acquired Otto, a Boston-based startup that developed robotic arms for military use.
But Otto had trouble getting its robotics and robotics software to market, and was ultimately sold to Microsoft.
