Autonomous cars have been getting a bad rep lately, especially Tesla, but that isn’t deterring Chevy and their autonomous driving technology continues to move forward.
Their autonomous Bolt prototype is now roaming the streets of Scottsdale, Arizona in addition to San Francisco and Cruise Automation is now hiring. That’s right, if you live in the Scottsdale or San Francisco area and want to be part of the team, know that the company is hiring Automated Vehicle Trainers to help them “test and improve the performance” of their driverless cars.
It’s not surprising to see GM test the Bolt around Scottsdale since Cruise Automation has opened facilities in Phoenix. The greater Phoenix area has become a paradise for testing and developing autonomous car. Even Google has announced that they will use one of Phoenix’s cities into a testing hub for their fleet of self-driving cars.
We don’t exactly when the autonomous technology will be made available to the public but it should be in the next 10-15 years. At least that’s what Kyle Vogt, CEO of Cruise Automation, told Wired by stating that he’d be “out of a job if he can’t do it within 10 to 15 years.”
