Levandowski was at the center of a lawsuit between Uber and
31 May, 2017, 00:39
The suit alleges that Levandowski, who used to work for Waymo, conspired with Uber to steal trade secrets from his former employer. Levandowski's lawyer did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
Mr. Levandowski was sacked on Tuesday. But it seems likely this has been coming for a long, long time, especially as Uber's self-driving auto has faced technical troubles as well as legal ones.
"I feel like we're brothers from another mother", Uber CEO Travis Kalanick said of Levandowski in an interview at the time of the acquisition.
Under the order, Levandowski was barred from being involved at Uber with anything to do with LiDAR, an object-sensing technology used to help self-driving cars "see", which is at the heart of the suit. "Footnote 9 of the Order specifically states that 'in complying with this order, Uber has no excuse under the Fifth Amendment to pull any punches as to Levandowski'". The deal was reported to have a price tag of $680 million. That Uber has dismissed the key person in a program they've argued has to happen, despite skepticism about the future of self-driving cars in general, will likely damage a company already staring down a host of problems. That same day, the company had started taking passengers in its self-driving cars despite lacking a permit from the California Department of Motor Vehicles.
