The failure to mention PACCAR was a significant omission. the PACCAR/Nvidia deal was referenced in an article I posted on May 10: Message 31101480

On Monday, the autonomous vehicle board featured a Bloomberg profile of Starsky Robotics, a self-driving trucking startup, which has "designed an artificial intelligence system for big-rig trucks that makes them mostly self-sufficient on highways, and then, when it’s time to exit onto local roads, allows them to be taken over and driven from a remote operations center. The plan is to eventually employ dozens of drivers, each of whom will keep an eye on a few trucks at once, sitting before arrays of monitors livestreaming views of windshields and mirrors."

Message 31160791

Surprisingly, the paragraph regarding competition also failed to mention PACCAR:

Its competitors include Embark, which is also backed by Y Combinator, and Otto, a startup that raised no outside capital and had fewer than 100 employees when Uber Technologies Inc. acquired it for $700 million. (Otto is the subject of a lawsuit that claims its co-founder stole technology from Alphabet, Google’s parent.) A fourth company, Peloton Technology, has raised $78 million to pursue adding some autonomous capabilities to conventional trucks. There are also self-driving big-rig programs inside Alphabet, Tesla, Volvo, and Daimler.

There is a lot of competition in the space.
