Anthony Levandowski, the former Google engineer and serial entrepreneur who was at the center of a trade secrets lawsuit between Uber and Waymo, has taken his newest autonomous vehicle technology company out of stealth mode with a product aimed at the commercial trucking industry.
Technically, Levandowski involvement in a self-driving trucking company was first revealed by TechCrunch in July.
Levandowski, nor anyone else attached to the company, would talk on record, leaving TechCrunch to rely on a paper trail instead.
Now, Levandowski is talking publicly about his company, including details on its mission and product as well as a bold new claim of a cross country autonomous drive.
Levandowski says the autonomous car drove by itself the entire 3,100-mile trip without any human intervention.
(Note the speed at which the vehicle is traveling at different spots like the Golden Gate Bridge).
