You Do Not Like To Drive

Hello fine readers. It’s been a while. I’ve been busy. I’m sure you have been as well. I was speaking a few weeks ago at the National Press Club (fancy, no? actually it really is no…it’s shabby) at an IoT Global Summit that was full of policy makers and regulators. I was going over a […] more…

Air Traffic Controllers For AVs

I was reading today about Lyft setting up their own AV unit with a more open twist – allowing automakers and tech companies to use their AV vehicles, share data, and maybe even share technologies. They are claiming that they are pursuing an open strategy as a way to bring safety benefits and environmental benefits […] more…

What is AV perception anyway?

I’ve been researching and thinking a lot about perception for autonomous these days. And I’ve been doing quite a bit of educating people on perception. Here is a long, over-due, but short, 101 on visual sensing for cars. Stop now if you’re already an expert. Autonomous vehicles logically require certain things in order to function: […] more…

I Am An Idealist

A very, very dear friend was reading through my blogs and was horrified by the content  – profanity, typos, etc. – but was particularly horrified about the one about Uber where I talk opening about the sexual harassment, sexism, and hostile workplaces I’ve sadly suffer through. This friend was so alarmed and dismayed by my […] more…

215 Is A Big Number

Where do you even begin with Uber? I think I’m going to start with the absolute absurdity of Bonderman. Please allow me to list these out because they are funny as fuck. And yes, I try and laugh more than I scream and I no longer allow this shit to make me cry. 1. Bonderman […] more…

I Love BMW

As many of my fair readers and friends know, I took a long time shopping for a lot of cars before settling in on my BMW 340i. It took me well over 4 months to consider everything from VW, Audi, Mazda, Jaguar, Volvo, Lexus, Mercedes, Maserati, and BMW. I did a ton of research, test drove […] more…

What’s The Deal With Intel?

Intel paid more for Mobileye than Fiat paid for Chrysler. That is $15 billion vs. $4.35 billion. Chrysler makes cars, trucks, SUVs, JEEPS! Mobileye at least was/is profitable. It is a lot of money. The only reason companies make such large purchases is because they are making bet on their future. Like GM’s purchase of […] more…

Raquel Won’t Help Uber

I was at Nvidia’s GPU conference last month, a truly amazing event and if you haven’t been, go. It is worth the money and all the infomercials. I was fortunate to see Raquel Urtasun speak. She was magnificent. Witty, clever, articulate, commanding, FRESH. Just was autonomous vehicles need, fresh perspectives, new insights, a new way […] more…

Auto Pilot For Everyone

Gentle readers, you know I’ve been absent.  Time has gotten the better of me and despite writing half a dozen blogs, I’ve not finished a single one.  Until now. As many of you know, I am a huge fan of autonomous technology and cannot wait for the future to arrive so, when I feel like […] more…

Why Communications Matter in Automotive Security

Hello Fine Readers – here is a blog I “wrote” this summer and forgot to post.  Yes, you can tell they had a professional writer clean up my profanity, I mean my grammar.   Security is never “one and done.” It is an ongoing process, requiring continual monitoring and updating. Aeris, as a full-stack telematics […] more…
