Anthony Levandowski is aware of his reputation.
Among the most controversial characters in autonomous driving, his background has been well-covered, in creating the Ghostrider bike which participates in the DARPA Grand Challenge in 2004 and 2005, to his job on Google’s self-driving car.
It continues with his founding of Otto, a self-driving trucking startup acquired by Uber, to his role in the center of the Waymo vs. Uber case. Levandowski was accused of resisting Waymo’s self-driving secrets and bringing them together to Uber, which fired him. Waymo eventually accepted a settlement of $245 million.
