The wheels of self-driving cars keep on turning, but which way are they headed? This newsletter covers everything that moves on its own from buses to cars to trucks as they race towards the critical moment where the rubber meets the road.

Pieces in this newsletter come from a variety of sources, from those sites and magazines focused specifically on cars to those that cover the shipping industry to local outlets that are reporting about how self-driving cars are impacting the daily lives of people such as senior citizens.

Articles include developments for autonomous vehicle stalwarts such as Waymo and Tesla, but also gives a peak behind the curtain at the research going on in universities that will be the basis for the technology in the years to come. Part of Deepnews focusing on quality is that it can be like a look into the future as reporters go in-depth on the possibilities.
