Cruise

In this episode, we speak with Kyle Vogt, the CEO of Cruise. His company recently joined the “driverless revolution” with their release of RP-1. This system is a highway autopilot that can be installed in your existing car. It controls your steering, throttle, and braking, making sure your car remains safely in its lane and a safe distance from the car in front of you.

The Cruise RP-1 sees the road and cars around you through the sensor pod mounted on the roof of your car. Through a combination of cameras, radar, and other measurement systems, the Sensor Pod relays what it detects back to the Cruise Computer to make real time decisions on where to go. A click of a button will enable the RP-1 to take control of steering and speed.
