Aurora works at the intersection of rigorous engineering and applied machine learning to address one of the most challenging, important and interesting opportunities of our generation: transforming the way people and goods move. Our mission is to deliver the benefits of self-driving technology safely, quickly, and broadly. We will deliver on our mission with the Aurora Driver, a platform that brings together our software, hardware, and data services to operate, as the driver, across vehicle makes and models, from the largest tractor-trailer or passenger bus to small cars and anything else that drives on the roads. Founded by three of the world’s leaders in the self-driving vehicle industry — Chris Urmson, Sterling Anderson, and Drew Bagnell —  Aurora has offices and tests its vehicles in Palo Alto, San Francisco, and Pittsburgh.
