I think one of the most exciting technological advancements is the ability for cars to drive themselves.

Leaders

Seems like there’s really three companies leading the way that I’ve been tracking: Waymo, Uber, Tesla.

Waymo (a part of Alphabet/Google)

Uber

Tesla

Traditional Automakers

Seems like the traditional automakers have realized that they need to get on the self-driving bandwagon or risk being irrelevant.  It’s interesting to watch

General Motors

Cadillac

Ford

Ford is testing having people in the seats as the seats. They want people to get used seeing people with no drivers.

Had a test with Dominoes about delivering a pizza.

Toyota

Other Players

Amazon

Apple

Aurora Innovation

Baidu

Has started a $1.5B fund to invest in self-driving cars.

Embark
