As a relative outsider to the automotive industry, you can forgive Google for not being up to pace with its own development of autonomous driving technology. Heck, as big as it is, Google still has some limitations, right? Right? While that may still be true in some respects, you wouldn’t know it based on recent developments tied into the company’s pursuit of self-driving cars. It still hasn’t made a breakthrough in that regard, but the tech giant is spreading its wings with plans to split its autonomous car division away from Alphabet X, the R&D arm that focuses on “moonshot” projects, and have it stand on its own two feet.
