    Programable Sequence of steps/settings

    Waymo teams with Jaguar

    Well this will make the electric and autonomous race more interesting: Waymo and Jaguar will build up to 20,000 self-driving electric SUVs Maybe it will get Tesla's butt in gear and get their autonomous software release moving. Too bad the consumer can't buy this I-Pace.
