Waymo LiDAR Stealing Saga Goes On

NYTimes, EETimes, Reuters: While Waymo has settled the lawsuit against Uber over stealing its LiDAR secrets, the U.S. Department of Justice filed the personal criminal charges against Anthony Levandowski, accusing the former high-ranking Alphabet Inc. engineer of stealing the company’s LiDAR technology before joining rival Uber Technologies Inc. Levandowski has started another self-driving car technology company since leaving Uber in 2017.

In February 2018, Uber announced to pay $245M worth of its own shares to Waymo to settle the legal dispute.
