Car hire provider Sixt is planning to deploy a driverless robotaxi service in Munich in 2022.
The company is working with tech giant Intel's Mobileye division to develop and scale autonomous vehicle services across Germany and other European countries over the course of the 2020s.
Robotaxi services in the Bavarian city will be available via the Sixt app and on Moovit.
The decision to use Munich as the launch city follows a recent law passed that allows driverless vehicles on German roads.
Testing will begin in 2022 and, subject to approval by the relevant authorities in the region, move to commercial operations.
The partnership between Sixt and Intel will see the car hire brand oversee maintenance and operations, with the chip and technology manufacturer handling ownership of the fleet through the Mobileye brand.
Intel CEO Pat Geslinger says: "Germany has shown global leadership toward a future of autonomous mobility by expediting crucial AV legislation.
"Our ability to begin robotaxi operations in Munich next year would not be possible without this new law."
