Sean Everett makes a strident case that Amazon is developing it’s own self-driving vehicles.
I’ve heard rumors about this for a while, including from startups that wouldn’t mind one day being acquired by Amazon.
And it makes all the sense in the world.
But I’m not sure I believe it.
The main reason it’s such an open secret that Apple is working on self-driving cars is that self-driving car experts keep joining Apple to work on some secret project.
I haven’t heard anything like that about Amazon.
So if prominent autonomous vehicle engineers aren’t building Amazon’s self-driving vehicle program, then who is?
