    Drive.ai went bankrupt and Apple placed the highest bid to scavenge it for less than what VCs had put into Drive.ai

      Hard to believe Microsoft is not in the self-driving car race, given its massive R&D capability?

      Not hard to believe. The auto industry is a logistical nightmare and a colossal money pit.

    • Microsoft tried to get in to the car electronics / audio market.

      They now know enough to not get in to any more automotive markets ;)

    They might not have bought it for AV but for different markets where the underlying tech can be used like AR/VR or robotics.

    If they have some useful IP it sounds like a bargain for Apple to get something already developed for less than it cost them to develop.

    Isn't this the first AV company to go belly-up ? I wonder if it's the start of bubble bursting for these vaporware companies.

      It's seems Apple has some kind of love/hate for AV. First Titan, then laid offs, now acquire Drive.ai... uuumm

    No wonder everyone at drive.ai is leaving.
