By Dan Johnson”I’m excited to be able to help our company grow and serve more customers and more people around the world.
Lexus is committed to bringing the latest in technology to its customers and the community, and I’m excited about working with our team to make that happen.”
-Chris Burden, CEO of LexusTechnology is key to the future of Lexuses business, but in many ways the carmaker is already a technology company.
It has a deep affinity with the Internet, and has invested heavily in building its own network of network infrastructure.
Lexis is currently building a massive data center in Texas, and is already using Google Cloud Platform as the backend to build its self-driving vehicle infrastructure.
As a result, Lexus’ ability to use Google’s cloud infrastructure to build autonomous vehicles will be vital to its business, especially in the future when the car will be more connected than ever.
“We have an ambitious roadmap, and we are committed to delivering on it,” Burden said.
“We’re really excited about the opportunity for this new platform to bring more people to our business and to enable them to be the best drivers on the road.
This is an opportunity we can’t miss.”
Burden has been with Lexus since 2010 and is now the company’s vice president of product management.
He previously worked for the auto parts manufacturer Volkswagen AG.
He said that, while the company has grown significantly over the past decade, it still remains a tech company with a focus on technology.
He said the company is already investing heavily in infrastructure, and that its new network infrastructure, called LexusNet, is part of that.
“This is part-time, and it’s about bringing our products to the people,” Burden said.
In the future, he said, the company will be able access the vast amount of data that is generated by its autonomous vehicles through a massive network of fiber optic cables.
“We are building an infrastructure that will connect all of our customers and all of their data so that we can be able, in the next 10 to 15 years, to have a huge amount of autonomous driving data that can be easily accessed by all of the companies in our industry,” he said.
“I think that’s the future that’s going to emerge.”
The Lexus network has already been deployed on a number of major metropolitan areas, and Burden expects the network will expand further in the coming years.
The company is building a network of more than 100 fiber optic cable connections that will ultimately connect the company to more than 400 different businesses in the United States.
Burden said that Lexus will soon be able connect its data centers to Google’s massive infrastructure, as well as a vast amount more data that will be stored on the cloud.
“The way that the data flows into this network, and the way that it flows out of this network is going to be incredibly significant,” he explained.
“It will become a completely different way of doing things.”
Burden has been in charge of the company since 2011, when it was bought by the Volkswagen Group, which had plans to develop self-parking technology in the car.
Lexuses vision has since changed.
It moved into building self-drive vehicles in 2017, and in 2018 began building a huge data center that will eventually house the entire network.
While Burden is excited about being able to work with Google and Lexus to make self-transforming vehicles, he isn’t optimistic about the future.
“[I]f you think about what we have been able to do in the last decade, we’re still in the early stages,” he noted.
Despite the company already being able and investing heavily into infrastructure, Burden isn’t convinced that this is the direction the company wants to head.
“I don’t think that our vision of the future is going anywhere,” he commented.
One of the main criticisms of Google’s self-powered cars is that they do not have enough autonomy to be considered fully autonomous.
But Burden believes that the company can take advantage of some of Lexys technological innovations to make its cars more self-aware.
For example, the car uses sensors and cameras to keep track of its surroundings and the surrounding environment.
With the help of Google, Lexuses vehicles can also keep track and analyze traffic conditions, weather conditions, and other factors.
According to Burden: “Google has done an amazing job of building and operating these systems, and they have a pretty deep understanding of how the environment works, and how to make the systems operate in a more autonomous way.
So I think that with a lot of the stuff we’ve done, and a lot more things that we’ve been able, Lexis will have a very well-rounded experience.”
In fact, the cars Lexus built are now used in the autonomous testing facility
