Episode #6 – Making Maps, How Many Speeds is Enough? Who Do You Trust?


This week Sam doesn’t let a cold stop him from talking with Dan about the Volvo XC90 T8 plug-in hybrid and the Kia Cadenza. The news starts with Mobileye’s efforts to build high-definition maps for autonomous cars, the latest automatic transmissions from General Motors and Ford. The discussion then veers off into George Hotz open-sourcing his Comma One hardware and software before tackling the latest prognostications from Ford futurist Sheryl Connelly. The show wraps up with some listener e-mail from Zack and Jonathan.
