    Tech history, starting with the DARPA self-driving challenge races in 2004. His info is good; his writing is, well, adequate. But the material pretty much makes up for that. 3.5 stars, rounded down for the fluff and filler. Book needed a more critical final edit, which you, the reader,...

    I was at the Urban Challenge in 2007 (still have the T shirt). It was amazing standing next to the road watching cars and trucks go by with no one in them, including 32,000-pound TerraMax, which had to be deactivated before it took out a building. The MIT entry kept braking for shadows...

    Want to understand autonomous cars? Start here No, seriously. This book goes all the way back to concept cars like Sandstorm and Autonomy to today's developers like Tesla, Uber and Waymo. Complete with the office politics, the engineering and the political problems. I also recomm...

    A beautifully written view into the past, present and future of mobility. I hugely enjoyed the fluent storytelling and balanced handling of the topics covered, respecting the accomplishents of both Detroit and Silicon Valley. I don?t always rate my books ????? but when ...

    Great read> This will change your view of the future. Highly recommend. ...

    Overall a good read on the history and major players in the AV space. My major complaint is that the author only acknowledges the positive AV scenario, but doesn?t consider things such as more vehicle miles traveled due to the fact that the car is driving for you, or potentially wors...

    The definitive history of AVs to date if you want to understand where we are and how we got here, read this book. Balances technical and non technical concepts well. Tells the story of all the key milestones with first hand accounts in many cases. Burns himself has had a front row s...

    Good info But why are electrics so rare? Why no self driving? Those are the obvious questions But also, he said electric cars will be cheaper....why is Tesla so damn pricy? And one of the things a fleet of taxis won?t handle: rush hour. This has to be solved by better mass ...

    Tech history, starting with the DARPA self-driving challenge races in 2004. His info is good; his writing is, well, adequate. But the material pretty much makes up for that. 3.5 stars, rounded down for the fluff and filler. Book needed a more critical final edit, which you, the reader,...

    I was at the Urban Challenge in 2007 (still have the T shirt). It was amazing standing next to the road watching cars and trucks go by with no one in them, including 32,000-pound TerraMax, which had to be deactivated before it took out a building. The MIT entry kept braking for shadows...

    Want to understand autonomous cars? Start here No, seriously. This book goes all the way back to concept cars like Sandstorm and Autonomy to today's developers like Tesla, Uber and Waymo. Complete with the office politics, the engineering and the political problems. I also recomm...

    One of the best books I?ve read about emerging technologies and the impact they will have. Highly recommended. ...

    Autonomy : The Quest to Build the Driverless Car - And How It Will Reshape Our World (2018) by Lawrence D Burns and Christopher Shulgan is the first insider account of efforts by big companies to create self-driving vehicles. Burns worked for decades for General Motors and was a V...

    The definitive history of AVs to date if you want to understand where we are and how we got here, read this book. Balances technical and non technical concepts well. Tells the story of all the key milestones with first hand accounts in many cases. Burns himself has had a front row s...

    Good info But why are electrics so rare? Why no self driving? Those are the obvious questions But also, he said electric cars will be cheaper....why is Tesla so damn pricy? And one of the things a fleet of taxis won?t handle: rush hour. This has to be solved by better mass ...

    Autonomy The book is full of great stories and Burns?s first-person account of what happened in the development of autonomous and non-gas vehicles. It also tells stories about some of the key contributors to the technology--Chris Urmson, Red Whittaker, Sebastian Thrun, Anthony Lev...

    Burns is a former GM exec who for years engaged in the thankless task of reforming the company from within, to steer it toward a greener future. He scored some successes by securing GM sponsorship of prestigious teams in autonomous driving competitions in the early 2000?s, but ultima...

    Riveting and compelling narrative on the innovation engines in Detroit v. Silicon Valley ...

    The future is thrilling with on-demand car-hailing and without personal car ownership. The steering wheel and pedal will be gone too. ...

    Tech history, starting with the DARPA self-driving challenge races in 2004. His info is good; his writing is, well, adequate. But the material pretty much makes up for that. 3.5 stars, rounded down for the fluff and filler. Book needed a more critical final edit, which you, the reader,...

    I was at the Urban Challenge in 2007 (still have the T shirt). It was amazing standing next to the road watching cars and trucks go by with no one in them, including 32,000-pound TerraMax, which had to be deactivated before it took out a building. The MIT entry kept braking for shadows...

    Want to understand autonomous cars? Start here No, seriously. This book goes all the way back to concept cars like Sandstorm and Autonomy to today's developers like Tesla, Uber and Waymo. Complete with the office politics, the engineering and the political problems. I also recomm...

    A beautifully written view into the past, present and future of mobility. I hugely enjoyed the fluent storytelling and balanced handling of the topics covered, respecting the accomplishents of both Detroit and Silicon Valley. I don?t always rate my books ????? but when ...

    Great read> This will change your view of the future. Highly recommend. ...

    Overall a good read on the history and major players in the AV space. My major complaint is that the author only acknowledges the positive AV scenario, but doesn?t consider things such as more vehicle miles traveled due to the fact that the car is driving for you, or potentially wors...
