Warner Norcross TIP group research fuels speculation on Google’s autonomous car strategy

To prepare for an Automotive News article titled “Why Google cars?  The software stupid,” journalist David Sedgwick met with Warner Norcross attorneys to consider Google’s recent IP filing as an indicator of its autonomous vehicle strategy. 
“It's not the vehicle itself that [Google] wants to produce. It's the software required for that driverless car, and possibly all other driverless cars,” Sedgwick said.  “I came to this conclusion recently after perusing a batch of 28 Google patents assembled by law firm Warner Norcross & Judd LLP.”

Technology and Intellectual Property practice group partners Greg DeGrazia and Matt Mowers as well as Automotive Industry Group Co-Chair Tom Manganello, participated in the wide ranging conversation helping to establish the Warner team as subject matter experts in the growing autonomous car dialogue.
