00:10:03 Collin Loewen: Evolve
00:10:36 Collin Loewen: Evolve Houston Website - https://www.evolvehouston.org/
00:11:17 Collin Loewen: Another website for following Texas legislation- https://txetra.org/
00:12:20 James Orenstein: Hello from North Central Texas (DFW).
00:13:22 William Swann: Where are the windshield wipers?
00:16:42 William Swann: Hope you touch upon the process of receiving a delivered item.
00:17:29 Jason Hall: Why Houston? Where is the hardware engineering and software dev work being done?
00:21:48 Jason Hall: Elon says Lidar is a crutch. Agree or disagree?
00:23:13 Robert Powell: any thoughts on going to wireless charging?
00:24:22 William Swann: Is there a human monitoring the vehicle status, remotely?
00:24:52 James Taylor: MY pizza is important!
00:27:24 Jason Hall: Can the vehicle be piloted remotely if needed?
00:29:25 William Swann: Sometime I can not see a red light because they are highly directional. Do the vehicle sensors have more sensitivity to red/green lights?
00:31:56 Jason Hall: Any plans to license the software, or use commercially available vehicles?
00:35:14 William Swann: Can you mention the thermal imaging camera?
00:35:16 Greg Geter: Are there high water sensors in the front bumper?
00:36:24 James Taylor: Has there been actual interaction with law enforcement on the road?
00:36:40 Maurilio Sanchez: What if you live in a gated community?
00:38:19 Jason Hall: Who are the biggest competitors in this space?
00:38:22 Steven Barnes: The question was already asked about human monitoring. Is Nuro performing the monitoring or the company the R2 "works for"? i.e., CVS, Kroger's.? Do you project that eventually a 3rd party company will handle monitoring and service for the R2's so your company can concentrate on other aspects?
00:38:34 Collin Loewen: Houston Tech Rodeo website - https://www.htxtechrodeo.com/
00:39:39 Steven Barnes: Impressive tech and idea. Glad to see you/someone is thnking about these challenges
00:40:58 William Swann: I live 14 miles from the Heights. What is the radius of operation?
00:42:33 Robert Powell: What computer core are you using?
00:44:00 Robert Powell: I have wireless charing on my motorcycle Im sure you can
00:44:15 Jason Hall: For deployment, any preference for single family vs multifamily neighborhoods, like partnering with apt. managers?
00:44:15 Stanislav Jaracz: What went into decision making to select this particular size of a vehicle?
00:45:18 Robert Powell: How has the chip shortage affected your deplotment?
00:46:09 Sterling Camp: operational range?
00:47:17 Steven Barnes: Have you had to deal with random acts of vandalism such as purposely damage or theft of contents?
00:48:23 Stanislav Jaracz: Are these vehicle going to be operated from a single depot or it will be a web of depots and the cars will get charged at various locations as well as loaded at multiple locations.
00:49:41 James Taylor: I assume the vehicle avoidance is to obey traffic laws, (not some creative drive itself off the cliff mode) to avoid collisions.
00:50:05 Sterling Camp: how many deliveries daily?
00:50:42 Jason Hall: thermal sensor to ensure pizza stays hot
00:51:45 Steven Barnes: R2 looks like its smiling at us.

01:11:06 Steven Barnes: Company publicly traded? IPO coming?
01:14:42 William Swann: What about the ambiguous situation, but very real, where there is a power outage - no stoplights, for example.
01:20:21 William Swann: How is remote communication? What format?
01:22:09 Steven Barnes: Can't wait for the Hot Wheels version of R2
