From the Ground Up—Zoox Turns a Corner with New AV and Sensor System Designs

In partnership with Zoox

What if you started designing an autonomous vehicle from the ground up? How different would it be from what is on the road today? Ryan McMichael of Zoox joins us to discuss how those questions impact the cars and the complex sensor systems that will enable an autonomous future. Zoox is a subsidiary of Amazon that is developing a new type of autonomous vehicles to provide Mobility-as-a-Service.
