Meet The Team

Building a self-driving vehicle requires gathering a huge amount of data from our real-world test fleet driving on city streets and recording everything the car does into vehicle logs.

We own understanding the events in the data and driving workflows for the training, simulation and evaluation of the self driving system at scale.
