Waymo accidentally discovered (in an email from a supplier) Uber’s Lidar technology electronic card plans, eerily similar to his

If someone else runs autonomous vehicles before him, Uber will have been Uberized. It is up to American justice to establish whether Uber has indeed stolen the technology from Waymo or if its Lidar plans are only the result of the work carried out by Anthony Levandowski, engineer specializing in the field, within his company Otto. Now that Uber has the technology, what can Google do? It’s not fair competition, they say. Even if Uber is found guilty of technology theft, Travis
