I’m pretty late to the Waymo v. Uber commentary stream, and I don’t have anything substantive to contribute.
Otto has been a great partner to the Udacity Self-Driving Car Engineer Nanodegree Program, and they are genuinely excited to teach people about how to get jobs working on self-driving cars. Our partnership has only gotten better since Otto became Uber ATG. I’ve met Anthony Levandowski briefly and he seems like a gentleman, and I know Sebastian thinks highly of him.
So that’s full disclosure.
My main reaction, though, is just how surprising the topic of the lawsuit is. Google sues Uber and the suit hinges on the design of lidar hardware?
Didn’t see that one coming.
