      Why? Building a car, the ride-sharing network and the AV stack is too ambitious. They won't ever recoup their R&D cost.

      If I wanted to bet on that kinda company, I would bet on Tesla

    • It’s indeed very ambitious.. which is why they just steal Tesla IP https://techcrunch.com/2019/03/21/tesla-sues-former-employees-zoox-for-alleged-trade-secret-theft/amp/

      Lol the Tesla “IP” they stole was the layout of the shipping area and package tracking software.

    Waymo. Not because its a part of Google. But I feel it's going to need massive investment which only Waymo can afford in longer term.

    I find it fascinating that "startups" are compared with Google (and potentially Tesla with its x00,000 cars) in a space where Data is a big determinant. Like how does a startup even compete with Google's x million miles driven??

      The startups are hoping to be acquired by one of the big players.

      Simulation is also an incredibly effective tool for training perception that doesn’t require a big fleet/lots of miles driven.

    This is a multi-trillion dollar market, so I believe there will be multiple winners. Waymo has a head start on the rest, but Aurora is catching up quickly, since we are *the* independent tech provider in the AV space.

    Waymo has the tech but Uber/Tesla have the infrastructure already.
    Decide what is easier to get next.
