Google's Self-Driving Car Project Is Losing Out to Rivals

Google’s project started in 2009, long before carmakers and most other companies seriously considered the technology. But when Singapore unveiled the first autonomous taxi service in August, Google wasn’t involved. Instead, a small startup called nuTonomy provided the technology. Uber Technologies Inc., founded in 2009, will soon let users of its popular ride-sharing app hail autonomous Volvo SUVs in Pittsburgh.

Otto, a startup run by former Google car project members, is developing a self-driving system for trucks on highways, an easier technological challenge than the one Google faces. Uber acquired Otto in July.

More Race To Zero bullshit.
These companies have more money than sense.
Good, Bad or indifferent The Business of America is Business.

ie Global Warming. Whether it exists or not and for whatever reason It Is A Huge Business generating Billions in Revenue, Employing Thousands
who pay taxes and consume the American Way, purchasing imported Chinese goods.

Whether autonomous cars are a reality today, tomorrow or a hundred years from now R & D needs to start and it's a Business.
Welfare is a Business
DOD is a Business
EPA: Business
Boarder Patrol : Business
War, Big Business.​
Just ask 5 Star General & 2 Term President Eisenhower
