AV2.0: Reimagining an autonomous vehicle

March 2024

tl;dr: A fully data-driven way to SOLVE autonomous driving.

Overall impression

Primary hurdles to overcome for fully autonomous driving are: 1) Technical scalability 2) safety critical engineering efforts 3) unit economics (BOM cost and util price) 4) regulation.

Out of the four, technical scalability is the key, or the ability of the decision-making SW to generalize to new situation quickly with sufficient perf for deployment.

Previous efforts (AV 1.0) focus on solving specialized general intelligence by combining components of even narrower intelligence.
