Happy Thanksgiving! At least for those of us living in the United States.
I have a lot to be thankful for this year. A new son, a wonderful family, friends, a great job working in a field that I love with a terrific team.
Nothing’s ever perfect (which, for example, is why my wife is giving me dirty looks while I edit Udacity lessons after Thanksgiving dinner), but it’s been a great year for me.
It’s been a pretty good year for the autonomous vehicle industry, too.
- Production trials with real customers in Pittsburgh and Singapore
- Tesla Autopilot is only a year old (!)
- Ford is growing its autonomous vehicle team by multiples
- Huge acquisitions of Cruise and Otto
Maybe at this time next year I’ll be thankful for my very own self-driving car 🙂
