Anthony Levandowski is a serial entrepreneur and roboticist. Levandowski’s startups include 510 Systems, Anthony’s Robots, and Otto Trucking. 510 Systems and Anthony’s Robots were successfully sold to Google and formed the technical foundation of Google’s “Streetview” mapping system and their self-driving car. Levandowski left Google in 2016 and formed Otto whose focus is on self-driving trucks. Levandowski recently sold Otto to Uber and now leads Uber’s self-driving vehicle program.
Levandowski and Miller have worked together on projects and invested together since their freshman year at UC Berkeley. An early Levandowski project that Miller contributed to was a self-driving fully autonomous motorcycle built for the first DARPA “Grand Challenge” autonomous vehicle competition. This competition was the spark for virtually all autonomous vehicle development in the last decade. Levandowski’s robotic motorcycle submission is now on permanent display at the national Smithsonian Institute in Washington DC.
Mr. Levandowski has been an investor in each of the company’s projects since inception. As a technology developer and real estate investor Levandowski understands and applies a unique perspective on how and where technical innovation can generate industry leading returns in the real estate and construction arena.
