Waymo Hires Ex-Tesla Engineer to Lead Self-Driving Hardware

“A few years ago, Waymo made the decision to start building our own self driving vision system, radar and LiDAR in house,” Waymo Chief Executive Officer John Krafcik said in a statement on LinkedIn. “This has been crucial to improving the quality of our self-driving technology, and bringing down cost. With Satish’s expertise, we’ll be able to further advance our self-driving hardware, and bring our technology to more people, more quickly.”
