Turns out unreasonable top down pressure coupled with unrealistic and unachievable production targets leads to unsafe behavior (like using electrical tape for cracks in casings!) - who knew? Setting goals people can only realistically hit 80% of can show positive motivational impact but setting goals people can only hit 10% off does little that’s positive and a lot that’s not...
The alternative meats category is so under supplied despite very real and growing demand for their products that this partnership and its stock impact is not too surprising. Entrepreneurs should be focusing on filling the vacuum here - lots of demand to soak up!
Not only is their performance justifying equality but the level of interest in this World Cup domestically seems to have also made it crystal clear - from bars to offices I’ve been amazed how much people are getting behind their teams at or above the levels seen for the men’s World Cup.
Why not actually enforce your rules or change them? Warning people that they are breaking your T&Cs seems likely to only build awareness that disobeying the rules is acceptable.
Full stack AV developers like Cruise and Waymo have teams of safety drivers who are trained and monitored during the challenging task of supervising AV performance. Deployment of L3 solutions on unsuspecting customers with misleading branding and capability confusion when combined with human’s limited capacity to remain attentive has already and will continue to be a deadly recipe that risks the entire SDC movement and its long term safety benefits. It needs to stop.
Why focus on the B2B agency space only when that booking volume has consistently declined as consumers switch to self booked travel? They must have a play for both audiences?
AV developers put their safety drivers through ongoing training , constant guidance and remote monitoring to ensure they remain attentive and ready to take over the vehicle within a moments notice. Think about how hard it is to sit in a car waiting for the moment it needs your intervention , especially if the tech is as advanced as someone like Waymo where disengagement’s occur thousands of miles apart, and remain attentive. Now consider for a moment that L3 solutions are being sold to regular citizens

Think about how hard it is to sit in a car waiting for the moment it needs your intervention , especially if the tech is as advanced as someone like Waymo where disengagement’s occur thousands of miles apart, and remain attentive. Now consider for a moment that L3 solutions are being sold to regular citizens, expected to provide the same level of supervision when they can barely walk 50 feet without looking at their phone. It’s a recipe for disaster, as multiple Tesla fatalities have proven and should not be allowed.
While the majority of AV press coverage understandably focuses on the massive technological challenges involved the questions around human acceptance and adoption is equally interesting. Will consumers value the safety benefits AVs offer if it comes at a cost of speed to destination? Will pedestrian behavior around the technology slow its progress and rollout significantly? Will other driver’s knowledge that these vehicles will do no wrong, break no rules make them easy targets? Only time will tell.
Not sure many are surprised by these developments - was a questionable acquisition at $3B+ and has shown little progress and promise in stealing marketshare from Amazon...
