Meet Zoox, the Robo-Taxi Start-up Taking on Google and Uber - IEEE Spectrum

The company is called Zoox, and it’s the brainchild of the Australian designer Tim Kentley-Klay and Jesse Levinson, an engineer who worked at Stanford University with Sebastian Thrun, the first director of Google’s self-driving car program.

The car is code-named L4, a play on the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s classification of full automation as Level 4.
