The Creator of Google’s Self-Driving Car Now Competes with It

Robotics pioneer Sebastian Thrun is building an open-source autonomous car.   If Sebastian Thrun’s third self-driving-car project is as influential as his first two, we’ll be tearing up our driver’s licenses sooner than anyone expected. As a robotics professor at Stanford, Thrun won the Pentagon’s 2005 contest for self-driving vehicles that fired the starting gun in the race to commercialize the technology. He then established and led Google’s car project, which has racked up more autonomous miles than any competitor. The one... [Lire la suite]
