Safety and Self-Driving Cars

Zoox Co-Founder and CTO Jesse Levinson describes how autonomous vehicles navigate, and how much faster they can perceive and react to problems on the road. The computer scientist earned his Ph.D. at Stanford University in 2007 under entrepreneur and educator Sebastian Thrun, the first director of Google’s self-driving car program. “The fact is, 40,000 Americans are dying every year in car accidents,” Levinson explains.
