About

Kyle Vogt is an engineer, entrepreneur, and robotics pioneer who is redefining the future of human mobility. In 2013, Kyle founded Cruise Automation, which under his leadership as CEO developed the first driverless fleet of Chevy Bolt EVs that are currently on the road in cities across the U.S. In 2016, Kyle and Cruise partnered with General Motors to help scale his vision for a driverless future, which under his leadership as CEO developed the first driverless car fleet to be widely tested in San Francisco and is now testing states across the U.S. At 14 years old, Kyle had built a self-driving power wheels car that used a webcam, computer vision, and a power window motor to follow yellow lines in a parking lot. As an undergrad at MIT, he worked on the DARPA Grand Challenge where he co-led a team to retrofit a Ford F-150 with drive by wire capability and sensors. Prior to Cruise, Kyle co-founded Twitch, Socialcam, and Justin.tv.
