Waymo and Cruise are the ones in the lead. Tesla got nothing at this point.

And they are already on the market, just that the market is as of yet very small indeed. It's going to take time to scale it up, years. But it will happen, I expect self driving cars to be somewhat common, enough to not turn heads anymore, by end of decade.

Aurora also has test vehicles including trucks and have been testing them in various cities collecting data.

Yeah there are a lot of self-driving companies out there trying all sorts of approaches. A lot of them with much more modest programs than putting a regular car on the road without a driver, but ultimately all chasing the same thing.

Road transport is a global 3 trillion dollar industry, successfully automating that is financial win for the ages.

You though internet was a tech boom? You just watch as self driving takes off.

Tesla's 10.69 is pretty impressive, and its a generalized solution.

I'd say Tesla and waymo are in the lead.

Cuise and BYD likely a ways behind

Mercedes is way back.
