Here's the thing.

At what volume do they need for this to be cost competitive with a gig worker driving Uber with his Corolla? There's so much up front R&D and ongoing (maintaining HD maps) costs, it will be years. I bet they loose tons of money on every drive. That's fine when you're playing the "it's not how much money you make, it's what you're worth" silicon valley game, but there are limits to that.

My prediction is that Waymo will be the Betamax of autonomous driving.
