Google’s Self-Driving Cars Graduate from X

Astro Teller, the head of Google X, says that the self-driving car project may be ready to graduate from X.

The key takeaway here is apparently that the unit is ready to make money and stand on its own two feet, financially.

That, of course, raises the question of how the unit will make money.

The most likely scenario seems to be more-or-less direct competition with Uber. The unit might launch ride-sharing services first on geo-fenced areas such as college campuses, and grow out from there.
