A week or so ago, I tweeted a pair of charts from a presentation I’m doing this week for a client. They showed some of the data from the California Department of Motor Vehicles on the subject of self-driving car technology. This is one of the best data sets we have on this topic so, even though it only concerns one state, it’s worth diving into a bit to see what it says about who’s winning among some of the major players.
