about this episode

What if your car could control steering, braking, and acceleration, all while staying perfectly in lane and stopping at exactly the right time, eliminating fender benders forever?

In just six months, Cruise Automation developed an add-on autopilot for your auto, and today CEO Kyle Vogt sits down with Jason to discuss its nuts and bolts, along with the charms and challenges of autonomous cars.
