Sometimes the best way to transform an industry is to create a new one.
Robotics, AI, simulation…
We’re solving a wide array of challenges in one of the most complex urban environments: San Francisco. From designing custom hardware platforms to writing highly optimized code running at low latencies, engineers from over 100 disciplines are doing the best work of their lives to reshape one of the world’s largest industries.
Making self-driving vehicles that are safer than human drivers is not a linear problem. We develop thousands of tools and simulations to accelerate our learning velocity and improve our speed to market. If you want to see your code impact hundreds of self-driving vehicles in San Francisco, our tools and simulations will get you there. Here are just four of our countless tools that we use to accelerate the progress of our self-driving technology.
Hardware, meet software
The Cruise approach of a fully integrated hardware and software stack gives it a unique competitive advantage. We are very impressed by the advances made by the Cruise and GM teams and are thrilled to help them lead a historic transformation of the automobile industry.
