Cruise automation going down

Oct 24, 2018 25 Comments

From article: "Vogt gave a speech at the time to his employees and asked them not to pull all-nighters or burn themselves out, said the source, who was present for the talk.

Cruise and GM began missing early milestones they had set together, including the first deadline less than a year after the GM acquisition of Cruise, according to two former Cruise employees and a former GM employee."

    This tech is a decade away, it's fine to break shit when it's just Facebook going down, but you don't fuck with people's lives in the move fast break shit fashion. I'd imagine the government will step in eventually

      Haha, I get what you're saying but when shit hits the fan a lot of stuff is fielded reliably and saves lives.

      I feel like an ass saying this btw.

      Don’t worry, “move fast and break things” is not the philosophy here at all. If the cars aren’t ready for launch, we won’t launch them.

    Waymo is there but most others are not. Waymo is also not a car company so their bottom line doesn't depend on number of units sold whereas cruise and GM inherently focus on that

      C’mon mate, you are better than that.
      It’s a pointless dick measuring contest. There r things waymo is better at, there r things cruise is probably better at, but the bottom line, NO ONE is done or ready.

      Of course, that’s why they aren’t launched yet. I think the parent comments are replying to the claim that Cruise somehow has substantially different incentives than Waymo due to being affiliated with a company that sells cars.

    Also, when this tech finally gets rolled out, will people even buy cars anymore?

      Not as much, and personally I think that’s a good thing. Fewer random people’s cars taking up parking space means the people who do have cars will be able to park more easily or that we could even reclaim that space for useful things like parks or schools.

      (Obvious disclaimer, I’m employed by Cruise, opinions are my own, etc.)

      I agree, I can't wait til I don't need to own this shit anymore unless it's a hobby car.

      This is also the reason I think it's basically a winner takes all situation. Well I guess you could have competing suppliers, but it might effectively make transportation an utility.
