Steve Wozniak

I'm hoping Apple does the same thing with autonomous cars that [they did with the iPhone]. I hope it's so much better than the others and not just another player. So we're just primed for these ideas that seem impossible, like they will never happen – but maybe with the right stroke of luck and the right finding by scientists, we can create futures you can't imagine.feedback

Steve Wozniak

Apple is such a large company it has to go after big markets. And self-driving cars is one that we're all reading about every day, and almost every car company in the world is working toward that. I go back and think about what made Apple successful and as big as it is. Look at the iPhone... you know, it was questionable at first but that was the way everyone wanted to go...So I'm hoping Apple goes the same way with autonomous cars. That you have one car –that can be sold without a steering wheel maybe – that is so perfect that everyone goes, Oh my gosh, I want this.feedback

Gene Munster - Loup Ventures

Friday's news of Apple's permit to test self-driving cars in California should not have come as much of a surprise given the poorly kept secret of Project Titan. In an ideal world, Apple's car project would involve the company building the actual automobile, combining hardware and software. In reality, the complexity of designing and manufacturing a vehicle may push the company to integrate deeply with an automotive partner or partners in an effort more similar to the Apple TV -- plugging Apple's technology into an existing product. It is not a manufacturing company, but a design company.feedback

Alex Lidow - Efficient Power Conversion

You don't need the resolution that would allow a car to stop before a bug hits its windshield. The question comes down to, what is the exact right amount of information for the car to make exactly the right decision all the time?feedback

Tim Cook - Apple

We are always looking at new things, and the car space in general is an area that it's clear that there are a lot of technologies that will either become available or will be able to revolutionize the car experience.feedback

Michael Ramsey

Right now, the largest tech players are scrambling to catch Uber, which has a big head start on virtually everyone. That means that if you don't have the capability in-house, you have to acquire it. XPerception has expertise in processing and identifying images, an important part of the sensing for autonomous vehicles. The purchase may help push Baidu closer to the leaders, but it is just one piece.feedback

Christoph von Hugo - Mercedes-Benz

At the moment, the carmaker is at an advantage since it knows how the components all fit together.feedback

Paul Drechsler

At a macro level, the issue of self-employment has to start on the basis of do we think it's fair and reasonable, and it's complicated in the sense that there is a whole community of people who are thriving on that employment model, who love that employment model, and who see the trade-offs as being acceptable. It's about being smart, but it's also about being fair. If you go to Seattle in the US for example, most of the people who are doing Uber driving are students, and it works for them. Is it operated in a way that works reasonably well? Yes.feedback

Johnny Luu - Alphabet

Uber's assertion that they've never touched the 14,000 stolen files is disingenuous at best, given their refusal to look in the most obvious place: the computers and devices owned by the head of their self-driving program.feedback

Bill Gurley

We have created a society where you can sue anybody for anything. That's going to happen first in Singapore or China, most likely China I would say, for a couple of reasons. You have a single-minded government that can make decisions implicitly. You have a much higher death rate per mile driven...so you have more of an incentive. There's zero chance that China can evolve the way America did as far as cars per household – it's just impossible, there's no roads....it's just much more likely to happen there.feedback

Oliver Cameron

I'm starting a new thing with great friends called Voyage Auto. We're deploying autonomous taxis to real users very, very soon. Voyage is building an extremely cheap and safe autonomous taxi service.feedback

Ben Wood - CCS Insight

GPU is about everything Apple does in the future. If it moves into AR, driverless cars, AI, all of those require GPU, so it's Apple taking control of their destiny in that space. What remains to be seen, is that, will they have the ability to do it by themselves or need IP from Imagination.feedback

Simon Tong

Driverless vehicles could be part of smart cities. Existing transport hubs that are well used like the Tube, the Thames Clippers and the Emirates Air Line cable car that we have here , they're all situated at one end of the Greenwich peninsular b ut there's lots of businesses and residences that are much further away than that. This is a great way to connect all of those people with those existing transport hubs.feedback

Christoph von Hugo - Mercedes-Benz

Cars which do not rely on any driver input have a different architecture and sensor setup, with more radar and cameras. We don't want to wait until level 3 has arrived before we start with level 4/5. That will be too late.feedback

Travis Kalanick - Uber

Then the person who is in first, or the entity that's in first, then rolls out a ride-sharing network that is far cheaper or far higher-quality than Uber's, then Uber is no longer a thing.feedback

Birthe Finkendey - Volkswagen Group

When certain conditions are met, such as I'm not driving faster than 130 km/h, the road has lane markings, and I am not performing any risky moves, – then I get an automatic prompt to switch to autopilot. A message tells me that the autopilot is ready, and I can activate it by pressing these two buttons.feedback

Aria Etemad

I believe for the urban scenario you cannot rely on the vehicle and the vehicle sensors only. You have to be connected to your environment. That means in the future we may have many sensors at the intersection. Maybe laser scanners and so on, that are just understanding what is going on at this intersection, how many people are crossing the intersection and so on, pedestrians, for example. And then this information has to be shared with the vehicle, so the vehicle is seeing more than by its own sensors only.feedback

Henrik Lind - Volvo Car

What we need is a vehicle that is able to understand the complete environment around us. We also need to understand the other vehicles around us, and their intentions. And not to forget, we'll also need to have the human-machine interaction well-implemented in the vehicles.feedback

Daniel Tidholm - Volvo Car

I want to change the right lane, so I double-press on the right paddle.feedback

Arnaud de La Fortelle

The problem is that there's a contradiction between two objectives, the faster I go, the less confident I am. If I want to be really confident, I go very slowly, and that's not efficient. So how do we increase both at the same time. For that, we need not only a good system of communication, but also good algorithms.feedback

Daniel Tidholm - Volvo Car

The car has very good knowledge of the surrounding vehicles. It's always having a safe distance with the car ahead, it's always monitoring the traffic. So in many ways I feel safer, actually, than if I would drive myself. The sensors are monitoring that side, finding a good gap. And if a good gap is found, the car will switch on the indicator and perform the lane change.feedback

Zhiyuan Yao

The more realistic a simulation is, the more problems there will be. But we're trying to take all these problems into consideration – in this way, we can solve them step by step.feedback

Kathrine Switzer

It's incredible it's happened so quickly. I always knew women's running would be popular and publicizable and I said it's as popular and publicizable as men's, but I had no idea it would become almost a women's sport now. Women are driving the sport and it's because of the empowerment and self esteem from running. I'm a long-term gratifier. I'm willing to wait it out. I'm willing to take it step by step.feedback

Josie Montenegro

The vehicles collided, causing the autonomous vehicle to roll onto its side. There were no serious injuries.feedback

Greg Clark

Companies around the world are making major investments and this offers long-term value for the UK as we punch above our weight. If the UK doesn't take this opportunity, many other countries will.feedback

Graham Hoare - Ford Motor

This is not just one industry, this is whole different industries coming together - data, detection - it needs all of government to work on it.feedback

Greg Clark

We need to trial it carefully but this is life-saving technology. It would be wrong to convey this as inherently risky technology. Human error is a more 'dependable' source of accidents and fatalities and this has got to be a well tested, demonstrated and regulated. We don't want to get back to waving red flags; we can get it right and need to get to a common-sense application of technology that will save lives.feedback

Mike Hawes

The benefits of connected and autonomous vehicles are life-changing, offering more people greater independence, freedom to socialise, work and earn more, and access services more easily. While fully autonomous cars will be a step change for society, this report shows people are already seeing their benefits. The challenge now is to create the conditions that will allow this technology to thrive, given how it will deliver wider societal advantages.feedback

Mark Couttie

There is a real risk that this momentum and competitor advantage in the UK will stall if we don't do more to create positive public perception, overcoming our inherent risk averse culture. Expanding people's horizons about the advantages of fully autonomous cars is a vital first step. This means better communicating the art of the possible to increase social acceptance and dispel concerns that our survey identified relating to cost and safety.feedback

Alexandra Cole

As far as I could tell, the third lane had no one coming in it so I was clear to make my turn. Right as I got to the middle lane about to cross the third, I saw a car flying through the intersection but couldn't brake fast enough to completely avoid collision.feedback

Kevin Carter

If it weren't for Tesla, I don't think the state of the electric car market would be anywhere close to where it is. Everyone is working on the electric car now, and almost everyone's working on the self-driving car, but the actual hardware of it [is made primarily by] BYD, Tesla. Who knows how this plays out? There's lots of things getting stirred together in this pot, lots of players, lots of money.feedback

Tim McNulty

Pittsburgh has been a host to automated vehicle technology for two decades, and will be continue to be a leader in the technology for years to come. One traffic incident in a city 2,000 miles away–in which the automated vehicle was not at fault, according to Tempe police–is not going to change that.feedback

Kristopher Carter - Uber

We looked at the headlines. Different companies, different technologies. It's sort of like how when Samsung had a battery issue, we didn't all put our iPhones in the trash.feedback

Liza Wallis

We were also able to record one that, if legislation is changed in future, might be used for crop spraying, but that's a way off yet. I'm told that we've got to wait for a change in legislation but we recorded it just in case.feedback

Graham Harvey

Its a technology that's proving quite useful to many farmers and one of our farmer characters has taken to using them as a way of looking at crops from above and getting an idea of the disease situation. They're quite widely used on farms now, otherwise they wouldn't be in the Archers: we reflect what happens in the real world. In the last couple of years there's been a whole spate of new technologies of which drones are only one.feedback

Arun Sundararajan

Every other company isn't betting the company's future on self-driving cars. Google will be fine. Uber is the one company in the world who has really made this all-or-nothing bet. Uber has tied their fortunes to the imminent arrival of fully autonomous cars, which is a highly risky. It's an outcome with a lot of variability, right? It could be three years, it could be 10 years.feedback

Nicole Carriere - Edmunds.com

It's all going to be a slow transition. There will be a fundamental shift, but it won't be overnight.feedback

James Kenyon

It's a whole mind-set change for the elderly to have something that they can't control, and even getting their children to buy into it. Theoretically, it sounds great, but there are so many possible impediments that have to be worked out, like, if there's a problem, what do they do?feedback

Oliver Rumpf-Steppat - BMW

You can say, Take me to the eye doctor or grocery store.' It will come back and ask which one. Most of the time, we get it right.feedback

Doris Alexander

I wouldn't know how to act. The concept that I'm in a car, the car is driving, and I have no driver – it's just something that's a little too strange for me.feedback

Nir Barzilai

It's not chronological age that's important, it's biological. There are 100-year-old drivers who are fine, and some 60-year-olds who shouldn't be on the road.feedback

Joseph Coughlin

The aging of the population converging with autonomous vehicles might close the coming mobility gap for an aging society. If seniors don't trust the technology and don't like giving up control, it will slow down this business dramatically.feedback

Andrew Ng

I want all of us to have self-driving cars; conversational computers that we can talk to naturally; and healthcare robots that understand what ails us. The industrial revolution freed humanity from much repetitive physical drudgery; I now want AI to free humanity from repetitive mental drudgery, such as driving in traffic. This work cannot be done by any single company – it will be done by the global AI community of researchers and engineers.feedback

Marco di Filippo

What we want to show is that there are many configuration errors. Many people put their smart homes, their own personal Internet of Things, online. At least it should be properly protected.feedback

Matthias Beldzik - Intel

A growing market segment is industry and inspection flights. What you see here behind us are models of industry facilities such as offshore facilities where it is not easy to fly to. So we need a strong and reliable system in the air.feedback

Jürg Michel

We do have three LiDAR sensors here, here, and up there. They are like the eyes of the vehicle. The bus recognises obstacles through these sensors and knows that it has to stop.feedback

Matthias Beldzik - Intel

Cameras and sensors get better and they become lighter. So flight times get longer, and the data about the facilities inspected get more and more reliable.feedback

Mohamed Mehdi Moniri

If a worker has those glasses, they will find it easier to work. We have concrete projects with the industry that we have developed around those glasses, which will help to contribute to an ergonomic workplace.feedback

Levy Raiz - Flint Capital

This is the priority of our second fund, which we are launching as I speak.feedback

Lior Zeno-Zamansky - EcoMotion

In the last 12 months, the global interest is rising more and more. Everyone is looking for the next Mobileye.feedback

Ralf Herrtwich

Time and space will become the luxury goods of the future.feedback

John Ronco - ARM

It will be able to process much faster and more efficiently than currently available processors.feedback

John Ronco - ARM

We've gradually evolved how we design our high end processors over the years but this is a fairly major step change in the way we combine them. We think it will be revolutionary in the way it enables our customers to build their products and design their chips. From a safety point of view what we have here is unique. We don't believe there is anyone else on the market that can do this well.feedback

Bryant Walker Smith

It's so easy to immediately focus on self-driving cars as the new and the scary and forget that every day 100 people die on the road.feedback

Mark Harris

Uber taxis are transporting passengers in Pittsburgh, Google's self-driving prototypes are criss-crossing Texas, and Tesla's cars are taking over the wheel nationwide, with little official testing or licensing of the technology beforehand.feedback

Bryant Walker Smith

Am I concerned about self-driving cars? Yes. But I'm terrified about today's drivers.feedback

Arianna Huffington - The Huffington Post

It's unfortunate that sometimes companies, like human beings, have to go through a crisis for major changes to take place. But that's what's happening at Uber. We cannot share the names, but it is really an indication of how excited people are to help lead Uber into the future. It's a phenomenal company that's changed the way we move around in cities all over the world. And now, with self-driving cars, will help take us into a very big next chapter in our future.feedback

Padmasree Warrior - NextEV

Our mission is very different. Google could potentially be a partner, they could be a customer for us. We are changing everything from the design of the car, the interior of the car. NIO Eve was actually designed inside out – we did the interior first and then the outside of the car, so it's a very different thinking. We are changing, for example, the network in the car so it acts more like the internet experience that you're used to. Most cars today have a network that is more like a dial-up modem and we need to bring that forward to bring it into the internet age.feedback

Padmasree Warrior - NextEV

Our target is really ownership – we are targeting people that have to commute. We call this autonomous vehicle a living space that moves you, so you can work in it, you can sleep in it, you can be entertained in it, that's the model we are going after.feedback

Padmasree Warrior - NextEV

There is a 40 percent in divorce rates if one spouse commutes more than 45 minutes each way.feedback

Jen-Hsun Huang

In the near future, you're going to see these schedules pull in.feedback

Jen-Hsun Huang

This is good news for the automotive industry which is notoriously slow to adapt to and implement new technology as it will have more time to defend its position against the new entrants.feedback

Erick Guerra

Some smaller firms are a little more gung-ho and a little more willing to take risks and push limits.feedback

Jaime Waydo

My mom's getting older and having those hard conversations about you're not able to safely drive anymore. We need to take your keys away. A technology like this can really give a lot of people mobility for a very long time.feedback

Corinne Kisner

When the human driver is expected to take over at any time … we know that's a real unsafe situation.feedback

Karl Brauer

This is like the smartphone transition times ten as far as the potential to change our existence on the planet. There's a sense of almost panic and certainly a frantic pace that all these industries are going through to try to position themselves in this new world.feedback

Bernard Soriano

The technology itself will perform a lot better than we perform now as humans. We needed to provide a clear path to completely driverless vehicles, because of the safety benefits.feedback

Jen-Hsun Huang

Because of deep learning, because of AI [artificial intelligence] computing, we've really supercharged our road map to autonomous vehicles. No human could write enough code to capture the vast diversity and complexity that we do so easily, called driving.feedback

Jon Medved - OurCrowd

The deal confirms Israel's global leadership position in autonomous driving technologies. The deal will also increase attention and funding for the already burgeoning Israeli cohort of next generation autonomous driving technology startups.feedback

Michael Granoff

What we are witnessing is the digitization of transportation, and digitization is something that Israel has been a leader in. This is far from a one-day or one-week story. This is going to be a story for the next 10 years.feedback

Amnon Shashua - OrCam Technologies

If you want to build a truly autonomous car, this is a task for more than one player... The idea is to have a number of partners to share resources and data.feedback

Mark Lipacis - Jefferies

INTC's use of cash for M&A makes us wonder if the market is drifting away from x86. The bar is low, but we think its P/E multiple drifts down.feedback

Benjamin Netanyahu

The purchase dramatically proves that the vision we are leading is coming true. Israel is turning into a global technology center.feedback

Benjamin Netanyahu

The purchase dramatically proves that the vision we are leading is coming true. Israel is turning into a global technology center, not just in cyber but also in the automotive industry.feedback

Padmasree Warrior - NextEV

In order to drive that innovation, we have to think of the car as a computer. If you think of the car as a robot, driven by software, you have to reorient the car.feedback

Padmasree Warrior - NextEV

The opportunity we think we have is to change our experience from driving to being, being human beings.feedback

Padmasree Warrior - NextEV

If you think about autonomous vehicles, they democratize mobility.feedback

Will Hutton

Talk of a new entrepreneurial class masks the fact that many self-employed people are struggling to pay their bills. Confusion reigns over how to regard Britain’s nearly 5 million self-employed, a number that has doubled over the past 20 years. Are they the heroic backbone of a flexible, innovative economy, driving employment and productivity growth, with the added, morally admirable quality of looking after themselves? Or are they the victims of a modern capitalism that is ruthlessly shifting risk on to ordinary people who can ill afford to bear it?feedback

Pierre-Yves Droz - Google

He also told me that he planned to 'replicate' this Waymo technology at his new company. We were having dinner at a restaurant near the office, and he told me that it would be nice to create a new self-driving car startup and that Uber would be interested in buying the team responsible for the LiDAR we were developing at Google.feedback

Bernard Soriano

We don't want to race to meet a deadline. We want to get this right.feedback

Johnny Luu - Alphabet

Competition should be fueled by innovation in the labs and on the roads, not through unlawful actions. Given the strong evidence we have, we are asking the court step in to protect intellectual property developed by our engineers over thousands of hours and to prevent any use of that stolen IP.feedback

Steven Hill

There were other reported problems, too. The self-driving cars couldn't pass on the left, even to move around a truck blocking the right lane; they couldn't make right turns at red lights, since the algorithms can't edge forward and scan for traffic – which frustrated the heck out of human drivers waiting behind.feedback

Ulrich Eichhorn - Volkswagen

The top sensors create a sensing 'curtain' around the vehicle. The lower ones scan further ahead and create a 25cm-high, flat-scan of the world.feedback

Ulrich Eichhorn - Volkswagen

Then you tell it where to go and it takes you there. It then drives away and parks, perhaps recharging itself. It could even be programmed to go down to the supermarket and collect your shopping for you.feedback

Laszlo Kishonti

The whole traffic system is based on the visual system. Drivers don't have bat ears and sonars, you just look around and drive. You can go to Scandinavia and see snow but there's no New York in Scandinavia. How do you test all types of traffic with snow? Trucking companies would be happy if the drivers could be eliminated but the trade unions will have different ideas.feedback

Laszlo Kishonti

Every day there's a temporary traffic sign somewhere, what does the first car that sees that do?feedback

Laszlo Kishonti

We would recognise it as a big mass of body, but probably would not be able to forecast what this animal will do.feedback

Laszlo Kishonti

Trucking companies are competing for 1-2% price difference, but 60% of the cost is the driver.feedback

Stefan Seltz-Axmacher

Our remote drivers will pilot trucks from the door of the distribution center to the highway, then remotely engage the autonomous system.feedback

Anthony Levandowski

Responding to your previous email, I politely disagree. We are not an [autonomous vehicle] and getting a permit further reinforces the misperception that we are an AV. We don't do AV testing.feedback

Brian Soublet

As you know, an autonomous vehicle cannot be operated in autonomous mode on public streets without the manufacturer holding a permit issued by the department. Is the vehicle that Uber has in San Francisco being tested in autonomous mode on public streets? By the pictures we've seen, the vehicle fits the definition of an 'autonomous vehicle' because it is 'equipped with autonomous technology that has been integrated into the vehicle'. The better course is to apply for a testing permit to eliminate any confusion about the operation of that vehicle on public roads.feedback

Jessica Gonzalez

In their minds, they really thought they weren't autonomous. But we decide what's autonomous. And under our regulations, it was.feedback

Travis Kalanick - Uber

If we are not tied for first, then the person who is in first, or the entity that's in first, then rolls out a ride-sharing network that is far cheaper or far higher-quality than Uber's, then Uber is no longer a thing.feedback

Anthony Levandowski

These types of articles and inquiries are why we want and welcome an open channel of communication with you.feedback

Elaine Chao

This administration is evaluating this guidance and will consult with you and other stakeholders as we update it and amend it, to ensure that it strikes the right balance.feedback

Elaine Chao

We will ask for your input as the (Federal Aviation Administration) develops standards and regulations to ensure that drones can be safely integrated into our country's airspace.feedback

Alex Rodrigues

The American Transportation Research Institute estimates there is currently a shortage of 100,000 truck drivers in the industry, which is poised to only get worse as baby boomer drivers – the bulk of the industry's workforce – retire over the next decade. Embark's goal is to increase productivity per driver and prevent the shortage from becoming a crisis.feedback

Harry Lightsey - General Motors

If somebody is allowed to put technology on the roads and highways that proves to be unsafe, that could have very harmful repercussions. These bills aren't being introduced at GM's urging.feedback

Denis Sverdlov

This is an historic moment for Roborace and for the future of autonomous vehicle development. Seeing these two cars interacting at speed on a race track shows how fast the technology is progressing and how important a platform Roborace is for further development. It is so exciting to see these vehicles functioning without any human intervention, making their own decisions and taking appropriate actions in order to guide themselves around the track.feedback

Mike Ableson - General Motors

Cruise, Lyft, Maven are all bringing different parts of this singular solution around autonomous on-demand networks in urban environments.feedback

Mike Ableson - General Motors

If you assume the cost of these autonomous vehicles, the very early ones, will be six figures, there aren't very many retail customers that are willing to go out and spend that kind of money. But even at that sort of cost, with a ride sharing platform, you can build a business. We walked in not wanting so much to talk about the business today, but how do we work together to develop this idea of autonomous, on-demand networks in cities. If you take those three things, no one company has all three.feedback

Travis Kalanick - Uber

These are the things we should expect in the next five to ten years. It sounds futuristic and sci-fi but that's where the world is going.feedback

Emil Michael - Uber

In most states and cities, there are no rules about driverless cars. Relationships with cities are hard sometimes, so you have to invest in a lot of them.feedback

Amnon Shashua - OrCam Technologies

The Volkswagen agreement is a turning point. [T]he agreement provides a framework for industry-wide cooperation between automobile manufacturers to jointly produce the map contents that are needed for autonomous driving.feedback

Travis Kalanick - Uber

Imagine now a car that is delivering food but doesn't have [a] driver. How do you get the food? You could come down and get it but if you have three kids … you want somebody to bring it up. And at some point there is going to be a humanoid that crawls up your stairs .. and hands you your pizza.feedback

Lee Hang-koo

Bringing in one person is not enough. Hyundai should form alliances with other companies, which will help hedge financial risks related to developing self-driving cars at a time of falling profit. But this requires commitment from the top management.feedback

Mark Fields - Ford Motor Company

From an accounting standpoint, [Argo AI] is a subsidiary. But in terms of how they're operating and how we're structuring the board, this gives them a lot of independence. Argo AI's initial focus will be solely and exclusively to support Ford's efforts to bring our autonomous vehicle to the marketplace.feedback

Bryan Salesky - Google

We founded [Argo AI] with the intent and the vision to see self-driving vehicles be made available and at scale. In order to do that you really need the scale and know-how of a company like Ford.feedback

Chris Grayling

Automated vehicles have the potential to transform our roads in the future and make them even safer and easier to use, as well as promising new mobility for those who cannot drive. But we must ensure the public is protected in the event of an incident and this week we are introducing the framework to allow insurance for these new technologies.feedback

Dmitri Dolgov - Google

This four-fold improvement reflects the significant work we've been doing to make our software and hardware more capable and mature. And because we're creating a self-driving car that can take you from door to door, almost all our time has been spent on complex urban or suburban streets. This has given us valuable experience sharing the road safely with pedestrians and cyclists, and practicing advanced maneuvers such as making unprotected left turns and traversing multi-lane intersections.feedback

Travis Kalanick - Uber

Auto manufacturers like Daimler are crucial to our strategy, because Uber has no experience making cars – and in fact, making cars is really hard. We can combine Uber's global ride-sharing network with the world-class vehicles of companies like Daimler, so that Uber riders can have a great experience getting around their cities.feedback

Michael Ramsey

This is just more evidence of the gulf between Waymo and all other companies in terms of testing and execution of self-driving systems.feedback

Jean-Louis Missika

Let's see how people will adopt them, how they will react in a vehicle without a driving wheel and no driver.feedback

Catherine Baratti-Elbaz

To respond to the pollution emergency in big urban zones it is urgent to innovate with new transportation systems that are more environmentally friendly.feedback

Amit Singh - Google

And do not even get me started on how interesting and exciting self-driving is for a computer scientist.feedback

Kazuhiro Tsuga

We are deeply interested in Tesla's self-driving system. We are hoping to expand our collaboration by jointly developing devices for that, such as sensors.feedback

Ryan Brinkman - JPMorgan Chase & Co.

CES has become increasingly automotive-centric in recent years, particularly as relates to autonomous driving.feedback

Daniel Binns - Interbrand

I've got it and you haven't, is what used to make premium. Now it is much more about having a better quality experience. So much of what defines an experience to the current generation is about what the technology delivers. The autonomous vehicle is the pinnacle of that.feedback

Mark Fields - Ford Motor Company

In our industry, the word autonomous is being used very, very liberally. There's different levels of autonomy. The question that should be asked when a company says they're going to have an autonomous vehicle ... is at what level.feedback

Egil Juliussen - IHS Automotive

What's new is the fact that they're trying to make it more into a product a few years down the road, while before it was really research and development effort and it was positioned that way. Now they're getting more serious about deployment.feedback

John Krafcik

Well, we're serious about creating fully self-driving cars that can help millions of people, and to do that we have to oversee both the self-driving software and the self-driving hardware.feedback

John Krafcik

Our latest innovations have brought us closer to scaling our technology to potentially millions of people every day.feedback

John Krafcik

A single integrated system means that all the different parts of a self-driving car work together seamlessly.feedback

Dirk Hoheisel

We're not looking to develop a proprietary system. We want to work with others to develop a standard platform and open standards for self-driving systems, especially around data and mapping.feedback

Amnon Shashua - OrCam Technologies

If you want to build a truly autonomous car, this is a task for more than one player. The technological challenges are immense. I would compare it to sending a man to the moon.feedback

Gill Pratt - Toyota

What's going on in the industry right now is like a hyper version of musical chairs - and the music is still playing. Everyone is changing partners.feedback

Elmar Frickenstein - BMW

We would like to create a standard system for everybody to use by 2021. That would share the costs and speed up the process of development and adoption.feedback

Guillaume Devauchelle

There will be a mix because it's quite a complex system (with) sensing, data fusion, artificial intelligence, connectivity, man-machine interface and so on. Those are big blocks.feedback

There's not one supplier out there who can provide the whole solution - no one who knows everything, every part of what's needed to make an autonomous car.feedback

Amnon Shashua - OrCam Technologies

It's relatively mature because of the many years of driving assist. Driving assist is all about … interpreting sensing to prevent collisions.feedback

Mark Cavender

If you think of when TVs went from CRT to flat screen, and when they went to high definition, the first people that bought them were wealthy technology enthusiasts. You also saw some business technology enthusiasts, to just learn about them. But the first visionaries were, for instance, sports bars in a city. All of the sudden sports bars, in the period of about a year, went to high-definition TVs.feedback

Vivek Wadhwa

Cars are still two or three years away. There's more focus on home appliances. The internet of things ... was big last year. Now we're going to see the integration, using the bots. Apple, Microsoft and Google are putting AI into everything. ... That's what 2017 will hold.feedback

Mark Cavender

The wearables that I think showed a lot of potential were B2B. A glove that's got sensors to help Mercedes-Benz have better quality on the assembly line by noticing a mistake. Or building a set of clothing that miners can wear underground that monitor their environment.feedback

Mark Cavender

Often I've seen with consumer products that they first cross the chasm with business.feedback

Doug Ducey

Arizona welcomes Uber self-driving cars with open arms and wide open roads. While California puts the brakes on innovation and change with more bureaucracy and more regulation, Arizona is paving the way for new technology and new businesses. Arizona is proud to be open for business. California may not want you, but we do.feedback

Doug Ducey

This is about economic development, but it's also about changing the way we live and work. Arizona is proud to be open for business. California may not want you, but we do.feedback

Fu Yuwu

You can't fundamentally use different channels (of communication), right? So in the end we need a unification process. This will be complicated and difficult but is in the best interests of the industry.feedback

Fu Yuwu

Rolling them (subsides) back is important because you can't rely on policy supports forever.feedback

Sergio Marchionne - Fiat Chrysler Automobiles

As consumers' transportation needs evolve, strategic collaborations such as this one are vital to promoting a culture of innovation, safety, and technology. Our partnership with Waymo enables FCA to directly address the opportunities and challenges the automotive industry faces as we quickly approach a future where fully self-driving vehicles are very much a part of our daily lives.feedback

John Krafcik

With this great new minivan on the road in our test markets, we'll learn how people of all ages, shapes, and group sizes experience our fully self-driving technology. Today, we're sharing a first look at the completed vehicles, equipped with our latest Waymo self-driving technology, including our suite of updated sensors, all-new computer and other major system updates.feedback

Anthony Levandowski

We think that's an extremely important part of building trust and understanding. The problem is that (the policy) does not apply to us.feedback

Anthony Levandowski

You don't need to wear a belt and suspenders and whatever else, things that don't apply, if you're wearing a dress. If you're driving a car, you don't need a fish and game permit.feedback

Anthony Levandowski

It's hard to understand why the DMV would seek to require self-driving Ubers to get permits when it accepts that Tesla's autopilot technology does not need them. We asked for clarification as to specifically what is different about our tech from the DMV, but have not received it.feedback

Anthony Levandowski

At the end of the day, the only thing that actually matters is what's in regulation and legislation. The legislation clearly defines what an autonomous vehicle is, and it's a binary thing: you're either it, or you're not it. There's no sliding scale.feedback

Gene Munster - Loup Ventures

We believe the efforts in automotive tie back to services in that automotive for Apple may mean partnering with experienced automakers to deliver great services rather than building the hardware itself, cars in this case. While an autonomous vehicle solution from Apple, either a car or the software, is likely multiple years away, we view auto as the next platform likely for the company to try to own.feedback

Anthony Levandowski

This type of technology is commonplace on thousands of cars driving in the Bay Area today, without any DMV permit at all.feedback

Brian Soublet

It is illegal for the company to operate its self-driving vehicles on public roads until it receives an autonomous vehicle testing permit. It is essential that Uber takes appropriate measure to ensure safety of the public. If Uber does not confirm immediately that it will stop its launch and seek a testing permit, DMV will initiate legal action.feedback

Anthony Levandowski

We respectfully disagree with the California Department of Motor Vehicles legal interpretation of today's autonomous regulations.feedback

Brian Soublet

Don't start doing this stuff. Apply for the permit. Follow the rules.feedback

Daphne Carmeli - Deliv

An autonomous vehicle is not going to pick up a package at your retailer, then walk the stuff up to the customer's doorstep and get a signature.feedback

Kirk Steudle

I don't want to regulate the vehicles. There is nobody in state government that has any knowledge to be able to say that a vehicle is ready to go on the road.feedback

Rick Snyder

It makes Michigan a location where particularly for the auto market it's a good location to do work.feedback

Kirk Steudle

It's a risk worth taking, because the future of the technologies we know are going to help reduce those crashes and reduce those fatalities.feedback

George Hotz

From this, you should be able to replicate our initial ... experiments.feedback

Glen De Vos

We are looking at Pittsburgh and Boston and a couple of others.feedback

Matt Bruning

Olaf Kastner

We now have discovered that the advancement speed and the ideas of the two business are a little various.feedback

Jennifer Haroon - Google

When you can't drive, it can be very isolating, and everyone wants to be able to go out, run their errands, go to the doctor, see their friends, on their terms. And that's what a self-driving car can really bring.feedback

Jen-Hsun Huang

We had a breakout quarter - record revenue, record margins and record earnings were driven by strength across all product lines. Our new Pascal GPUs are fully ramped and enjoying great success in gaming, VR, self-driving cars and data center AI computing.feedback

Carlos Ghosn - Renault

But I think when you have a technology that brings so much benefit that I don't think people are going to drop off … after one problem.feedback

Carlos Ghosn - Renault

Then, after 2020 you'll have the driverless cars, the cars without the driver.feedback

Carlos Ghosn - Renault

The most exciting technology is the combination of connected (cars) and autonomous (driving). Now the car becomes a mobile space, connected, where you can have a video conference, see a movie, talk to your kids or consult your doctor.feedback

Tom Enders - Airbus Group

I'm no big fan of Star Wars, but it's not crazy to imagine that one day our big cities will have flying cars making their way along roads in the sky. In a not too distant future, we'll use our smartphones to book a fully automated flying taxi that will land outside our front door – without any pilot.feedback

Rodin Lyasoff - Airbus Group

In as little as 10 years, we could have products on the market that revolutionize urban travel for millions of people.feedback

Rodin Lyasoff - Airbus Group

Many of the technologies needed, such as batteries, motors and avionics are most of the way there.feedback

Jay Leno

First, you had anti-lock brakes, then you had lane departure warning lights. It's just another thing to protect you, that's all.feedback

James Sembrot - Anheuser-Busch

We admire Otto's vision that will shape the future of self-driving transportation. As we continue to partner with long-haul carriers to ship our beers, we hope to see this technology widely deployed across our highways to improve safety for all road users and work towards a low-emissions future.feedback

Lior Ron - Otto

The incredible success of this pilot shipment is an example of what is possible when you deploy self-driving technology. It also showcases the importance of collaboration with forward-looking states like Colorado and innovative companies like Anheuser-Busch.feedback

James Sembrot - Anheuser-Busch

We can see a future where this type of equipment is standard on all trucks.feedback

Elon Musk - Tesla Motors

You will also be able to add your car to the Tesla shared fleet just by tapping a button on the Tesla phone app and have it generate income for you while you're at work or on vacation, significantly offsetting and at times potentially exceeding the monthly loan or lease cost.feedback

Elon Musk - Tesla Motors

This dramatically lowers the true cost of ownership to the point where almost anyone could own a Tesla. Since most cars are only in use by their owner for 5 percent to 10 percent of the day, the fundamental economic utility of a true self-driving car is likely to be several times that of a car which is not.feedback

Selling a vehicle with the latest and greatest hardware, but an unproven self-driving software package is a risky strategy.feedback

Sebastian Thrun

Lidars are becoming very inexpensive, and they will always add an additional safety layer. So in these early days of self-driving, I wonder why anyone wouldn't want to use lidars for added safety.feedback

Brian Soublet

The goal is making sure that we can get this life-saving technology out on the streets.feedback

Hilary Cain - Toyota Motor

If we do not do exactly what's being asked of us voluntarily by NHTSA, we can not test an automated system in the state of California. That is unbelievable which suggests testing that is happening today might be halted which indicates testing that will be started might be delayed.feedback

Peter Schiefer - Infineon Technologies

With this acquisition, we take a big step into the lidar technology that will play an important role in the safety cocoon essential to fully automated cars. We intend to make lidar an affordable feature for every new-built car worldwide.feedback

Hilary Cain - Toyota Motor

The problem is there is going to be accountability and there is going to be enforcement. We need to go through this with a fine tooth comb.feedback

Peter Schiefer - Infineon Technologies

It is not just the camera and the radar. The contribution of lidar has to do with redundancy requirements.feedback

Matt Rendall - Clearpath Robotics

Factories operate like small indoor cities, complete with roads, traffic, intersections and pedestrians. Unlike city streets, a factory floor is a controlled environment, which makes it an ideal place to introduce self-driving vehicles at scale. Companies like Google, Tesla and Uber are still testing, whereas our self-driving vehicles are commercially available today.feedback

Dmitri Dolgov - Google

You get to 90 percent autonomy in 10 percent of the time and then spend 90 percent of your time on the last 10 percent.feedback

Sebastian Thrun

Self-driving car engineers are extremely in demand. The acquisition landscape is a very good way to measure the desperation. Desperation is the wrong word. But the same urgency and desire, particularly with our partners, companies like Mercedes – they really are looking for talent.feedback

Carlos Tavares - PSA Peugeot Citroën

There can be no compromise on safety, which is absolutely crucial - that is why at PSA we've always believed autonomy will happen in incremental steps. This is not the case for certain competitors who have tried to produce a fully autonomous vehicle right away.feedback

Henry Claypool

There are real barriers to transportation and we need to be clear about what those are and make sure we leverage the technology to address them.feedback

Henry Claypool

There are some people who are just so isolated that it really compromises their ability to enjoy their basic civil rights.feedback

Bruno Benoliel - ALTEN

We have indications from our customers, I mean the European ones that they will continue to increase the externalisation, outsourcing because they absolutely need to make productivity gains.feedback

Bruno Benoliel - ALTEN

Within the aerospace sector the main driver for us is Airbus, and as you know Airbus has completely achieved the development of the A350 and A380 planes. So of course the R&D budget has decreased at Airbus.feedback

Timothy Carone

They want to allow innovation, but they want to be very proscriptive in managing the risk side of this. In my mind, they're trying to manage the unknown.feedback

Gary Peters

This technology is moving so rapidly that it is outpacing the public policy that is necessary to make sure we're doing this properly.feedback

Barack Obama

Make no mistake: If a self-driving car isn't safe, we have the authority to pull it off the road. We won't hesitate to protect the American public's safety.feedback

Barack Obama

If a self-driving car isn't safe, we have the authority to pull it off the road. We won't hesitate to protect the American public's safety.feedback

John Ronco - ARM

What we see is that all of these systems have a similar technology platform, a similar framework in terms of what they're doing, and they have the same requirements in terms of having processors that can safely make decisions about what the system should do.feedback

John Ronco - ARM

If you have a piece of safety critical code, you want to be sure that nothing can interfere with that.feedback

Barack Obama

Right now, for too many senior citizens and Americans with disabilities, driving isn't an option. Automated vehicles could change their lives. Safer, more accessible driving. Less congested, less polluted roads. That's what harnessing technology for good can look like.feedback

Consumers need more than just guidelines. This new policy comes with a lot of bark, but not enough bite.feedback

Carlo Ratti

This project imagines a fleet of autonomous boats for the transportation of goods and people that can also cooperate to produce temporary floating infrastructure, such as on-demand bridges or stages that can be assembled or disassembled in a matter of hours.feedback

Jeffrey D. Zients

States are welcome to do what they want to do, but we hope it will be in support of a [consistent uniform national policy].feedback

Gloria Bergquist

Guidance is the right action to take since the technology is developing quickly and collaboration between automakers and NHTSA is critical to avoid policies that become outdated and inadvertently limit progress in reducing the number of crashes and saving lives. A policy that evolves is smart, given the pace of technology.feedback

Mark Rosekind

Our enforcement authority stands strong, and it will be used to its fullest effect as needed.feedback

Amnon Shashua - OrCam Technologies

[Autopilot] is not designed to cover all possible crash situations in a safe manner... No matter how you spin it, [Autopilot] is not designed for that. It is a driver assistance system and not a driverless system.feedback

Jing Wang - Baidu

Being able to do road tests will greatly accelerate our progress.feedback

Aaron Steinfeld - Carnegie

Since the mid-90s pretty much this entire field has been focused on doing that last step.feedback

Anthony Levandowski

I think the public is going to be delighted. You call an Uber and you are used to a specific experience. And now you have the future coming to you a little bit early.feedback

Anthony Levandowski

This is the next level of safety, really allowing machine precision and machine execution to be able to bring more safety to driving.feedback

Sebastian Thrun

If you go through this curriculum you are on the bleeding edge of self-driving cars.feedback

Dave Carvajal

You'd be hard-pressed to say the Udacity candidate is going to be more qualified because they have some specific knowledge about self-driving cars, versus someone who has a rock-hard degree in computer science or data science.feedback

Tim Cook - Apple

Do you remember when you were a kid, and Christmas Eve, it was so exciting, you weren't sure what was going to be downstairs? Well, it's going to be Christmas Eve for a while.feedback

Jude Hurin

There's a lot of desire to have something that doesn't go to that extreme.feedback

Ben Wood - CCS Insight

Movidius will help further Intel's efforts to offer solutions around computer vision and artificial intelligence. The company is betting big on securing a place in the next wave of technology that will be instrumental across multiple areas including autonomous driving, drones, mixed reality, navigation and robotics.feedback

Travis Kalanick - Uber

Volvo is a leader in vehicle development and best-in-class when it comes to safety.feedback

Mark Fields - Ford Motor Company

This decade, for the auto industry, will be defined by the automation of the vehicle. From our standpoint, we see autonomous vehicles as the potential to have the same societal impact that Ford's moving assembly line did more than 100 years ago.feedback

Mark Fields - Ford Motor Company

We abandoned the stepping-stone approach. There are too many risks involved in the safe "hand-over" of driving responsibility between car and driver.feedback

Johnny Luu - Alphabet

Seven years ago, the idea that a car could drive itself wasn't much more than an idea. Chris has been a vital force for the project, helping the team move from a research phase to a point where this life-saving technology will soon become a reality. He departs with our warmest wishes.feedback

Donna Boland - Mercedes-Benz

We do not want any potential confusion in the marketplace to detract from the giant step forward in vehicle safety the 2017 E-Class represents.feedback

Missy Cummings

Go into Starbucks, for example. No one can just patiently wait in line, they're all doing something on their phones. It's kind of pathetic.feedback

Missy Cummings

Drivers in these quasi- and partial modes of automation are a disaster in the making. If you have to rely on the human to see something and take action in anything less than several seconds, you are going to have an accident like we saw.feedback

Bryant Walker Smith

There is a tendency of people to take one ride in one of these vehicles and then conclude that because they have not crashed over the course of 10 minutes that the system must be ready.feedback

Kaushik Raghu - Audi

Jack is programmed to work on freeways in automated mode. It doesn't have all the antennas and the cables, and sensors sticking out. It just looks like a car that you can go buy at the dealership today.feedback

Scott Kupor - Andreessen Horowitz

We've got … Comma.ai which is basically using machine learning to basically figure out how to build an autonomous vehicle.feedback

Astro Teller

The self-driving car project is in the middle of graduating from X and this is sort of a gradual process.feedback

Mary Cummings

If we are not going to be able to get that correct, then we probably shouldn't be using these kinds of modes of operation.feedback

Bryant Walker Smith

For years people have been saying the technology is ready, and it's one of my pet peeves, because no it's not.feedback
