Autonomous Vehicle Industry can avoid WeWork’s Fate

“In retrospect, there’s no way this could have worked,” a WeWork software engineer told the magazine. “People were high … It seems insane now, but at the time it made so much sense.”

That is a quote from the Business Insider article — ‘It seems insane now’: WeWork employees bought into cofounder Adam Neumann’s vision but grew worried as red flags mounted

So, what are the insane parts?

· Public shadow and safety driving is the best, only or even tenable method to conduct most development and testing.

· The injuries and deaths caused by safety driving, including the thousands to come when accident scenarios are learned, are necessary and for the greater good.

· Most of the real world cannot be replaced by simulation

· The simulation technology in this industry and gaming-based technology are the most advanced

Of course, none of these is remotely true. And I mean nearly flat earth, Theranos ridiculous.

There will come a time when everyone involved in this will distance themselves from this like the GOP will from Trump someday.

My company is Dactle — We are building an aerospace/DoD/FAA level D, full L4/5 simulation-based development and testing system with an end-state scenario matrix to address all of these issues. We can supply all of the scenarios, the scenario matrix tool, the data, the integrated simulation or any part of this system. A true all model type digital twin. If someone would like to see a demo or discuss this further please let me know.
