Google’s Self-Driving Car Project Takes A Big Step Forward
Google may have just taken its most important step yet in making the self-driving car a reality. And it didn’t happen in a lab, testing track or anywhere of the sort. It’s happening in a board room.
Later this month, auto industry veteran John Krafcik will become the CEO of Google’s self-driving car project. The message is clear: this project is indeed not some theoretical pipedream; Google now definitively has its eye on the business side of this venture. They’re not just building a self-driving car, they’re preparing to bring it to market.
While Google is presumably still a long way off from setting any kind of release date for the self-driving car, Krafcik’s impressive resume–including successes at Ford, Hyundai, and elsewhere–bodes well for the project. Learn more at The Wall Street Journal.
