"I think that's probably true for a lot of the self driving companies. If you look at sort of the peak hype that we were seeing twenty sixteen seventeen. This was right around the corner now. People realize that this is gonna take much longer to really achieve this. That's gabrielle coppola reporter for bloomberg talking with us about the challenges of bringing driverless cars to america's roadways and it will be a while. Thank you so much for for your time. Thank you and one more note. Way mo- announced earlier this month that they're going to start offering autonomous taxis in san francisco but this time with the human driver and front for backup. Well president biden's chief medical advisor. Dr anthony fao ci said yesterday on. Cbs 's face the nation. They'd kovic nineteen booster shots from pfizer. Could begin across the country later. This month the booster roll out for madeira could be delayed. Slightly officials are waiting for data. But it's further evidence at the pfizer. Vaccine is considered safe. It has full approval from the fda for the initial two dose shot and fda approval. Means it's available for it's known as off label use. That's caught the attention of some parents who have children eleven years old or younger. They're asking clinicians to give their kids a shot even though the vaccines and not yet approved for that age group martha beating from member station w. b. u. r. reports many parents including beth folsom from framingham. Massachusetts are frustrated. The children are still waiting for vaccine. Nine months after the first shots were cleared for adults. People were saying by september that was going to be the promised for the kids. The younger kids and We certainly thought that by the time he went back in the fall there would be a children's vaccine that they could at least start to take now with school. Starting and the delta variant surging fulsome is anxious to get her nine year. Old son nate vaccinated. Here's the pitch she plans to make to nate's pediatrician. Her son is tall for nine size. Wise you know he could definitely be at the size of a twelve year old meaning a child who has already allowed to get vaccinated. So why shouldn't nate. Get the shot. The folsom household includes beth's mom who is newly eighty. She's vaccinated but still at risk for a breakthrough infection and fulsome wants to make sure nate can stay in school this year. It's really an issue of trying to balance mental health and social interaction with the physical house. P send i would rather take the risk of potential side effects from a vaccine which i think are pretty negligible than having him potentially spread it. She others are household or elsewhere says fulsome to protect everyone in the community but getting vaccinated. Now maybe a tough sell the. Fda is telling clinicians to wait and the american academy of pediatrics is sending messages to members trying to preempt off label. Vaccinations for kids. Because there is so much desire there is a concern that people will jump the gun and start to use it. Dr lloyd fischer a pediatrician in worcester massachusetts. He's president of the state chapter of the american academy of pediatrics. We have absolutely no reason to believe that the vaccine will not be safe and effective for children of all ages. The same as it has been for the adolescence and the adults. However without having the data to analyze we cannot say that with certainty fischer says he needs the trial data for example to confirm the appropriate dose pfizer. Says it's trial for five to eleven year. Old gives a third of the adult dose. Everyone younger is getting a tenth of one adults and teenagers receive. Fires says it does not comment on off label use for here and now i'm martha bebinger. Firefighting conditions are improving in the lake. Tahoe basin thanks to lighter winds and cooler temperatures but the work of containing the kaldor. Fire is still exhausting. Racquel maria dylan of member station k.

A students sledding a country director in afghanistan for the norwegian refugee council. Thank you so much What good work you do there and thank you for sharing a few moments with us. Thank you for having me. This is here now and for a few months. Now people around phoenix. Arizona have been able to hail taxis without a human driver. The service is through waymo alphabet self driving car project. Sure your seat belt is fastened. The writer said four agents. Well oh my god. We're driving look at the front seat. Look at the front seat. There's nobody in this car but me. I'm the only person in this car. I'm sitting in the backseat and the car is driving. That was here. Now's peter o'dowd last year. Taking one of those first rides will link to that piece that here and now dot org. It was a major first step in the race to get autonomous cars onto america's roads but recently a headline from bloomberg khader i it reads way is ninety nine percent of the way to self driving cars. The last one percent is the hardest. Gabriel coppola covers the auto industry for bloomberg and joins us from detroit with more on that. Welcome to the show. Thank you thanks for having me. Yes so you and your colleague mark. Bergen wrote this latest article on way mo. And we're focusing on this company because as you right they are still ahead of everyone else in this effort with that. How good is way mos right now. Well it's fair to say there are still the best in the industry mean to this at this point. They are the only company that has managed to offer taxi. Rides with no human driver than it really is a very big achievement. At the same time you write that one percent that one percent is still a killer. What are the limitations. Well there's a term that people in the industry is a lot called the edge cases in really what that means is sort of those very rare occurrences just freak things that can happen or maybe not so free. you know. There's a weird construction going on in a road or there's a parked car and the computer can't tell if that person is parked in getting ready to leave or parked in though he person's getting out of the car there are some situations that you can't anticipate on if the robot hasn't seen it before it doesn't have the kind of human like intelligence to figure it out and so it's still needs human help in that regard right you also right. I mean something. Like weather handling rain or sleet or snow. They've got to figure out all of those types of conditions as well but once they get all of that figured out there's also a lot of questions about manufacturing capacity. what have you learned. Yeah waymo took over. They leased plant here in detroit in a neighborhood called him traffic a few years ago and this was kind of hailed by the ceo at the time of this is the world's first autonomous vehicle manufacturing plant. We're going to you know. Be cranking out rubber taxis and things like that but when i spoke to some of the folks that have actually worked inside the plant. Work there They described a situation which was much more kind of painstaking and difficult but basically what they're doing is they're taking cars from for example jaguar land rover which makes the electric i pace suv. That waymo is now. Deploying in san francisco engineers come in. They have to kinda hook up all the special sensors the kind of eyes and ears and brain the car. Hook it all together. The problem is we can take a car apart like that even partially and you put it back together. You might misplace a wire and then and then. The car doesn't work then so y'all kayla call up an engineer in london over. You know it's a problem that engineers have to figure out and takes days. That's very different from what you imagined with like sort of you know. High volume manufacturing where. There's an assembly line cars. Just being cranked out. This is going to slow and it's manual in. Its people taking things apart and putting them back together right with that though right there up against traditional auto companies. They're still ahead of all of them but waymo is a tech industry and its roots are in the tech industry. Who are they up against in the automotive industry in this race to get these driverless cars on america's roadways. Yeah well there's been some consolidation. I would say because this is such an expensive project. A lot of companies. Just kind of throw in. The towel uber threw in the towel recently and sold his business. That we don't want to deal with this anymore but you still got crews which is controlled by general motors. Gm you've got argo controlled by ford. There's a company called aurora which is actually founded by Some top engineers from google itself and tesla that are still pursuing this and one of the things. I found interesting in the story was. There's this big debate. You know between silicon valley to them a software problem. There's a certain arrogance about it. They think they can solve any problem. The world we just throw a lot of software engineers at it and they don't always at least for folks in detroit they feel like they don't always appreciate how complex manufacturing is so. There's kind of a debate. I think i sense to debate between how important that manufacturing stuff really is you know what for my reporting. It sounded like it was a serious headache. Wayman will dispute that and say it's not but you know i've talked to people who say no. It really is an issue. What are some of the regulatory environment challenges for a company like this even if they built a perfect autonomous vehicle. Can they just put it on on the road whenever they want to. Great question As of yet the government the federal government does not have a standard. that says. This is what you have to prove. You can do to say an autonomous vehicles safe. It's really State by state. Some states are more lax than others but there are autonomous vehicles being tested all over the country a lot of these companies flocked to states that have less regulation less disclosure requirements. Things like that so while everybody is start out in california. Now you see people working. In arizona and florida which have more i guess Lax or more accommodating regulatory environment another challenge with waymo is also internal strife. There have been some changes in leadership. Yes what i think you're referring to earlier this year the ceo. John craft chick who had he actually was an auto executive who has kind of brought into waymo to kind of help. Grow the business side. He left in the spring and a lot of other pretty pie. Level executives left as well And that definitely did raise a lot of eyebrows about you know what's going on here. Why is there this big exodus of talent and As far as i can tell you know mark and i from our reporting. It's not that people don't still believe in the mission. They feel that it's taking a lot longer than they expected. And i think that's probably true for a lot of the self driving companies. If you look at sort of the peak hype that we were seeing twenty sixteen seventeen. This was right around the corner now. People realize that this is gonna take much longer to really achieve this.

The CEO of John Krafcik who he actually was an auto executive who has kind of brought into Waymo too. Kind of help grow the business side he left in the spring and a lot of other pretty high level executives left as well. Um, and that definitely did raise a lot of eyebrows about you know what's going on here? Why is there this big exodus of talent and as far as I can tell, you know, Mark and I from our reporting it. It's not that people don't still believe in the mission. But They feel that it's taking a lot longer than they expected. And I think that's probably true for a lot of the self driving companies. If you look at sort of the peak hype that we were seeing in 2016 17, this was right around the corner. Now people realize that this is going to take much longer to really achieve this. That's Gabrielle Coppola, reporter for Bloomberg, talking with us about the challenges of bringing driverless cars to America's roadways. And it will be a while. Thank you so much for your time. Thank you. And one more note. Waymo announced earlier this month that they're going to start offering autonomous taxis in San Francisco, but this time with the human driver in front for backup President Biden's chief medical advisor, Dr Anthony Fauci, said yesterday on CBS's face The Nation that Covid 19 booster shots from Pfizer could begin across the country later this month. The booster rollout for Madonna could be delayed slightly. Officials are waiting for data. But it's further evidence that the Pfizer vaccine is considered safe. It has full approval from the FDA for the initial two dose shot and FDA approval means.

"Between what the buzz is versus. What people actually buy if that makes any sense. That's exactly right. People vote with their pocketbook is the phrase and i think that's true and before this people wanted electric vehicles and tesla's mainly the only option in the last twelve months were beginning to see many more options in the next twelve to eighteen months provided we can get chips and a few other room rubber tires and a few other things that are in very short supply coming in short supply. There's gonna be some other strong competitors and then we'll really get to see. There's an iron chef thing in here and i can't think of the phrase but it's like you know who's gonna who's gonna stand last year who's cuisine reigns supreme. That's what it was. And i think that's one of the key questions is. How do you manage your supply chain. This chip shortage is going to drag on. There was just the news that taiwan is gonna make. Tsmc cut seventeen percent of their production because of the water usage issues over there. Because they're going through a drought we had gabrielle coppola from bloomberg on talk about all the details of the chip shortage. I think this is going to get into a question of who can handle supply chain and can they stick to the prices that they're promising because one of the attractive things about the f. One fifty lightning and yes it definitely gets more expensive than more do hickeys. You add which it always does. Anyone who deals in the pickup truck segment knows that once you get up to a larry or some of those other trim packages the prices start to go up regardless. Yeah i mean those are luxury vehicles at that point. But it's a very compelling answer to ribian which is much closer to one hundred thousand that hummer emmy which is in that six-figure total and then we're the cyber truck supposedly is going to land and then we've got the lordstown group which is i can't say one or the other how that one's gonna work out but they appear to be in the mix or potentially in the mix in the next twenty four to thirty six months so we shall see you bring a pricing and that is something i wanted to talk about. Of course the headline thing that they rolled out that yes you can get one of these things for sub forty thousand dollars. That is a commercial grade vehicle. That only is going to be like a fleet level thing. They're saying sangley sort of a mid level ex. Lt is going to be fifty while they said fifty two and change but by the time you add destination and everything else when they were talking. Fifty four fifty five thousand realistically average transaction price. Probably going to be something close to sixty to sixty five thousand with top level. Trims probably pushing close to one hundred thousand in the platinum trim. And i say that based on the fact that a few months ago i had an f. one fifty with the power boost which is their hybrid. F one fifty truck in not top level. Trim it was the king ranch rather than the platinum and the sticker on that was seventy thousand and change so you figure at least another ten to fifteen thousand dollars worth the battery costs and yeah you're starting to push six figures there. So how does it compare against the rest of their lineups. You just mentioned that one. Do you think that this is going to find a home or do you think this is a trial balloon. How do you feel about the f. one fifty lightning. It's a little of all of the above. so is it a trial balloon. Yes and the fact that the has gone reasonably well you know. And they borrowed the co franchise name of ford mustang and that's has seemed to work out okay f..

"Not completely. They cut a shift for a couple of weeks. And then they're going to bring them back in the two ships go down basically. They're not at full production so when people are on layoff they don't get paid as much. So indefinitely has an impact people in their pocket book in their wallet individually. And i think about those knock on effects in a region like ours that although we're starting to diversify a bit in the mortgages and healthcare autos is still a big thing and if the auto industry catches a cold detroit catches a flu. Yeah no. I think that's true. And it's all the suppliers and everything to right. It's obviously not happen. It's everybody comes down. The line is impacted by that. What about long term solutions. They were meeting with the biden administration. I know that some of it was trying to push those other makers to do things you know. Use the power of the. Us government kind have to like push things but in reality. We're only going to need more chips. What about the idea of bringing this to the united states. I mean look michigan's got a lot of water. You need a lot of water to make chips. It turns out what about doing something. Like a fab year in michigan. I haven't heard anything about michigan specifically. But i definitely think that that is happening. I was just talking to a company. Last week called global foundries there actually owned by like the united arab emirates but they have operations in the us and europe in asia and they have a plant in one in vermont in one in upstate. New york that makes chips. I think intelligence said not mistaken. They're building a new plant in arizona. I mean if there's any special conditions need for a chip plant. But i think that or the most interesting things i mean terrible but interesting things about this pandemic is that it's kind of exposed all of these flaws in our society and in our economy. Basically this whole idea that. I know this will resonate. Very strongly. Here in michigan globalization outsourcing. Everything was not an awesome idea like maybe like steamed awesome at the time for the companies. That were doing it. Because they're saving so much money and they felt like this is the world now that we can survive by outsourcing. Everything compete on cost. But i think the pandemic is like an president trump. I think. I mean i think he obviously brought manufacturing jobs made that like really really top of mind issue within the american politics i think between trump in the pandemic. I think that everybody is on board with this idea that we cannot keep all of our manufacturing outside the country. And i think whether it's batteries for electric vehicles or chips for our cars it's of strategic importance that we build stuff in america because otherwise we'll be going through what we're going through right now. I feel like though. That's probably gonna also require governmental support because one of the reasons they globalize is to lower costs and the prices of cars. Just keep going up. I mean that's one of the challenges that i hear from listeners. Especially like millennials and the such where. It's i want to do something. I want to get a new car but these prices just keep Going up and so you've got to kind of do something to mix up market even read a piece. I can't remember who in automotive observer who was like there's even a market segment open for cars that may be. Aren't you know forty thousand dollars out the gate first of all. Yes absolutely cars. Keep getting more and more expensive. And it's a concern because even if people say oh well. Interest rates are low. And even if you can afford that monthly payment i mean like a lot of debt might take a long time to head off. So that is a concern. I do think the automaker still keep a little space in their lineups. For entry level cars specially like some of the asian automakers. But of course you know people if you want to buy american at right because everything's free into an suv. That's more expensive. Your options are more limited. I think the automakers a couple of years ago just kind of cut all their passenger not the asian automakers Automakers cut on their kind of entry level passenger vehicles but to answer your question about cost. You mentioned that. Some of the chipmaker's automaker. Ceo's were kind of talking to the white house. Yes they are asking the white house for. I think it's fifty billion dollars to subsidize making a chip factories in the us. Wow yeah so this is serious. That's a price tag. Yeah you know. Look at if you look at the whole spending. Well i'm not gonna opine pine on the budget but as a portion of the budget. It's not huge but yeah but it's you know as a podcast or for a living. That's a lot of money. Yeah money to me too so to this point about cost in the cost of cars. I actually asked the same question that one of the people i talked to chip foundry. I said well. Can we really do this. Can we just move everything to the. I thought you know it was too expensive. You know the cost of living is so different and he said you know. Yeah okay you gonna pay somebody in the united states than you would pay someone to jeff factory in korea. Maybe but it's still cheaper than the alternative like what we're going through now like. I'm sure all these car companies. If you told them pay ten percent morning we'll have to deal with a chip shortage from sure. They would have gone for the option had been presented like that did take a hard disruption like this to really wake everybody up definitely we ever realize anything until the only way anything done is the things. Unfortunately it get really bad. That's what it seems like. So what's kind of the way forward that you see especially here in twenty twenty one twenty twenty two even if some sort of enhance fabrication facility starts to come online and we start to do these investments. These are multi year long term investments. What are we going to see in twenty twenty one twenty twenty two. I think you're right. You don't snap your fingers in flip on a switch in tonight. I got like some chips that takes like eighteen months or longer from beginning to end to get a chip to what i heard from reporting. Is that the second quarter. So april may june is going to be the worst. That's like everyone's expecting that to be like trial of everything then in the third quarter they expect some relief like some of the chips that they did order when things picked up. We'll be ready so they'll get some more. But i don't think that it's going to be totally back to normal food sailing by then even for last night and i think the ceo of intel to has said this is something that stretches into twenty twenty two. Yeah so it's going to continue. But i think it's on it's gonna get better but it's just not going to get totally better right away because the other thing is for the automakers it's sorta like they don't know what they don't know they like need this chipper this thing but once they get that they might realize like oh actually. There's another part behind that realized that also needs a chip. So i've been told that it could be kind of bumpy or lumping. They may have new problems. That crop up along the way. I know this sounds and i'm not trying to be down on detroit or whatever but i feel like a phone maker or another type of manufacturer isn't going to have that question about dependencies. They're going to know like you talk to an apple. They're going to know okay. These are all the chips that i need. This is the board that i need. These are the everything that i need and to have that. Be a question in my mind. That i i'm kind of stunned amid it. Looks like that now but hindsight is twenty twenty right like i think you know there probably were by the guests. I would say there may be people then the auto company saying hey. We should do it this way but maybe they didn't get you're going to the ceo and say hey. Can we spend some more money on chips. You know if everything's going fine you might say it's like having rainy day on. Why if it's working the way it is now. Why would you want to plan for a kind of. I mean maybe would if you're prudent and obviously some car companies did because some fared better than others who's fared better. I think bloomberg star about toyota that they had done a lot better i think. Bmw did better. But i think everybody's getting hit ally constrasting on long enough that i don't think there's anybody that's like completely immune to this. Well gabriel coppola. I appreciate your time.

"You driving by the same law. That's near my house last week. I was actually going. So i was trying to check out the Waymo plan because waymo the the self-driving unit of google they actually have a little plant in hamtramck. I drove over there and check that out. And then i was like whoa. What is this massive one. I just went around the block to take it all and it was all pickup trucks. And then i was talking to one of my colleagues. That's it's called building shy. It's like they've got everything they need. Except this one little part right and this one chip so they are building the cars so that when they do get chips. That could just come in you know. Put the chip module in there and then ship it off to the dealer. Wow yeah that stack has just been growing. And there's i've seen other pictures online of lots around the region and near plants. What is the origin of this crisis. Because it i. I think a lot of people kind of ignored here because there were some analysts who are like. Oh it'll be something that happens for a month or two and maybe there'll be a couple of plants closed but it seems like this is ramping up including a meeting with the biden administration. Yes and i think probably in the beginning. That's probably what the automaker thought to that. It would just take a month or two. It's taken longer than that. So the root of this it has to do with the pandemic it has to do with the fact that you know when we had the lockdown starting last march and the detroit three automakers made a deal with the uaw and the governor said okay. We're going to completely shut down plants for two months so we can kind of figure out how to get our like kobe protocols in place you know how to operate safely. We're just gonna you know. The workers were very nervous about having to go the plants and afraid of getting kovin rightly so so they shut down for two months and when they did that i think the car companies said to their suppliers stop sending shift. We don't want chips no more ships. We don't want chips because the auto industry big part of how they make money as this whole concept of just in time manufacturing meaning only give me as much as i need just to put in this vehicle right here like they're not out there like stockpiling huge amounts of tires or car parts chips or anything you know they have some buffer-stock but not too much and that's how they kinda control their costs building cars. It takes billions of dollars of investment to make a car but the amount of money that actually goes in your pocket. It's a very small slice of all the money that you invested. So they have to control those costs when they saw. They had to do that. And they freaked out. They told their supply. Okay stop sending me. We don't want chips all right. So when over. In taiwan or japan or korea wherever asia where. They're making these chips. They're like okay well at the same time apple and samsung and you know everybody else. That's making tablets or video games or whatever it was like. I did more chips than ever because everybody is staying home. They're working from home. They need more devices. So that's already what the majority of demand for chips was it's from consumer electronic devices. But all of that sort of capacity at those semiconductor foundries the ones that are actually making the chips in asia. Kinda got gobbled up by tech companies. Go back to okay. We end the two month shutdown. Thanks start to open up again and everybody. In the auto industry surprise. Demand for cars was actually superstrong. Because i think you're locked in your house you wanna go somewhere. Will he live in a big city. Maybe before you took this way. You don't feel safe taking the subway anymore so you want a car or drive and go camping or whatever it is people wanted cars. They're not as comfortable taking a uber or lift. You know they want their own car so demand just like with through the roof and the makers like scrambling to get back to work and meanwhile kobe raging all this stuff. They call it their suppliers. That oh just kidding actually. I need a lot of chips. And they're like sorry we sold them all. We don't have more chips for you. So that's what happened. And there's kind of a lot of friction and tension between the semiconductor companies that are producing these champs. The automakers it strikes me as a big difference in that it seems like apple and samsung in the like directly. Deal with the semiconductor suppliers. Meanwhile at least from my research dealing with these chips is actually down the chain from say a general motors or afford yes. I think that's exactly right. That's something that. I've talked to a lot of people balanced in my reporting on this issue car company. The way they operate they're kind of the top of the food chain and they don't know what's going on like five levels down. They just say okay. Active or josh or continental whoever their supplier. Is this piece. That i need and under suppliers the one who's getting the chips and then there's like you know people different layers subcontracting for different parts getting the chips. So they're just very far removed from the source and they don't have visibility into that and that is very different from like something like how apple treats their supply chain. And i think the reason. Is you know cars before officially. It was more mechanical. You weren't really worry that much about a digital features in the car or you know more high tech stuff in the car. That's more new so when you think about all the chips in the world the auto industry just consumes ten percent so the automakers are like that like that. Crucial is not strategic suppliers. Worry about it and you know. We'll just take like whatever chips off the shelf stuff that you made for other people. We'll take some of those too and we'll kind of like tinker with them and make them work for our purposes. Apple is like no. I'm designing my own chip. I'm totally in control. That i know exactly. Who's making it for me. And i'm gonna pay you an advance all the money for all these chips for like months and months in advance. And that's like lockdown because when they launch a new iphone or something they can't be like. Oh we ran chips they secure that ahead of time but it takes more money up front to do that. Do you think that's going to change. Because i think about the times. I've been in tesla and i've actually sat in a pre production riven. Earn the two of those vehicles are much more like a phone than a car. Yeah i think it is changing and tesla ribian. All of the automakers are changing investing technology to put more tech in the car. They are talking about changing. I think just yesterday jim farley the ceo ford on. They had a really rough earnings report yesterday because they disclosed that basically they're only going to be able to make half of the cars. They wanted to in the second quarter because of the lack of chips. Wow yeah and they said two and a half billion dollars this year. It's gonna cost them. Because this chip shortage so jim farley talked about how they are kind of taking a hard look at their supply chain and thinking about what they need to do differently and probably you know. Act more like apple. Because it's you know you've got all these self driving features that are starting to be in cars even something just like lane keep assist. You know they'll let you know if you're going to change lanes. Somebody's blindspot that kind of stuff. That takes chips electrification. You know. if you're running on a battery takes more chips to kind of convert that battery power into propulsion of the car. But it's not just electric cars right like even today. There's all kinds of interesting more sophisticated technology on the engine of a car that helps it'd be more precise in how harnesses the power of the combustion. Engine cut takes chips so basically the auto industry is saying room okay. This is showing us that we need to be more strategic. Recant just treat this like some little widget. That doesn't matter. This is crucial. Opens up a bunch of questions for me. I think i in the short term is this going to have an impact on manufacturing jobs and jobs in the supply chain of. You're not building cars. You're not you don't have as much money coming in absolutely. I think it's already happening. I was looking at a spreadsheet the other day of all different plants that are shutdown temporarily. Jay nap jefferson north. Plant in detroit. That makes the jeep grand cherokee. That plant is idled.
