The data-integration project "involves a large data problem and a large-scale control problem, both of which are fascinating to me and have been passions of mine for years," the release quotes Gosling as saying.

"I'm their new chief software architect," Gosling said in his own voice in the blog. "I'll be involved in both the onboard software - sensing, navigation and autonomy - and in the datacenter, dealing with the in-rush of data.
