Chris Urmson Reflects On Challenges, No-Win Scenarios And Timing Of Driverless Cars

Urmson’s recent “Perspectives on Self-Driving Cars” lecture at CMU was particularly interesting because he has had time to absorb the lessons from his long tenure at Google and translate those into his next moves at Aurora. He was also in a thoughtful space at his alma mater, surrounded by mentors, colleagues and students. And, it is early enough in his new start-up’s journey that he seemed truly in “perspective” rather than “pitch” mode.
