TechCrunch hat geschrieben:Tesla provided, through a spokesperson, the following statement to TechCrunch regarding the settlement:
"Tesla’s lawsuit against Mr. Anderson, Mr. Urmson, and Aurora has been settled. Under the settlement, Mr. Anderson’s contractual obligations to Tesla will remain in place and will also be extended to Aurora, with additional specific protections being added to ensure there are no further violations. The settlement also establishes a process to allow Tesla to recover all of the proprietary information that was taken from the company, and it provides for Aurora’s computer systems to be subject to ongoing audits to monitor for any improper retention or use of Tesla’s property. Finally, $100,000 was paid to Tesla."
Sterling Anderson provided TechCrunch with this short emailed statement, but also wrote up his thoughts on what this means for his company and self-driving tech in general on Medium:
"We started Aurora to accelerate the industry. Frivolous lawsuits only slow it down. Today, less than three months after filing (and before we were permitted to file a response) Tesla has withdrawn their claims, without damages, without attorney’s fees, and without any finding of wrongdoing. We have even agreed to reimburse the cost of a future audit to demonstrate the integrity of Aurora’s intellectual property."

Ich bin froh, dass sich jetzt beide Seiten auf die zukünftige Entwicklung konzentrieren können und sich nicht streiten, wer wem was Böses getan hat. Für eine Scheidung klingen die Statements jedenfalls recht vernünftig.
Vielleicht ja auch eine gute Nachricht für AP2-Owner, dass der Rosenkrieg wohl ausfällt und Anderson bei Tesla zumindest in der nächsten Zeit niemanden der AP-Entwickler abwerben darf.
