Automakers Are Beating Silicon Valley At Its Own Game

While Silicon Valley is talking the talk, it looks like automakers are walking the walk. To be fair though, had it not been for the tech industry getting the ball rolling, car manufacturers would still be stuck in a rut.

While Apple reportedly scales back its EV/autonomous car project, called Titan, and Google continues to send out monthly updates about how many times other drivers run into their vehicles, companies like Ford, GM, Audi, Mercedes, Honda, BMW and Tesla (the closest thing to a tech company that makes cars) have already introduced vehicles with semi-autonomous features. Research is great, but shipping a product is the end goal. Automakers are shipping.
