Lyft Self-Driving Car - The Road to Autonomy

Doing Good In The World

Jody Kelman, Director of Product Management, Self-Driving Platform, Lyft joins Grayson Brulte on The Road to Autonomy podcast to discuss why self-driving cars are creating a better world.

In this episode, Grayson and Jody discuss curiosity and how it led to Jody securing an internship in the Irish Government during college. After graduating from college, Jody packed up once again and headed to Uganda to join a Non-Governmental Organization (NGO).

From a global curiosity conversation to a United States Presidential Transition, Jody has a deep understanding of global affairs and society in general.

Bringing the conversation full-circle, we shift into why it is important to take the first meeting with interesting individuals and how that openness led to Jody and Grayson’s friendship.

The conversation then shifts to a hyper-local conversation focused on self-driving car developments. As Lyft beings to roll-out self-driving technology, the company is working to ensure a safe, clean ride experience.

From the student who can now visit a museum to an entrepreneur who opens an autonomous in-vehicle nail-salon. The possibilities of what self-driving cars can enable are endless.

Self-driving creates a better world for all of us to live in.

– Jody Kelman, Director of Product Management, Self-Driving Platform, Lyft

For children, self-driving cars can unlock unlimited possibilities to experience new learning environments leading to a life long love of learning and curiosity.

Curiosity can take you around the world. Curiosity can take you to the ocean to study marine biology. Curiosity will take you anywhere you want to go. The Lyft self-driving network will make unlocking curiosity possible for millions of individuals around the United States.
