Description

Chris Urmson, co-founder and CEO of the self-driving technology startup Aurora, joins Azeem Azhar to explore the state-of-play of self-driving technology, the criticisms the tech must address, and the huge challenges to be overcome before we trust a computer to drive our kids to school.


They also discuss:



  • How Aurora’s founders built their “no jerks,” team-oriented culture.

  • The importance of new LIDAR sensors (light-radar) for achieving faster speeds with bigger vehicles.

  • Why Aurora is skipping the baby steps and heading straight for the prize of fully autonomous driving (in specified locations and conditions).
