Just how hot is the self-driving vehicle space?

So hot that if you're a sharp 21-year-old with robotics experience and some smart friends, you can land millions to start your own company.

Embark, a new self-driving truck startup that launched Friday, is the brainchild of University of Waterloo buddies Alex Rodrigues and Brandon Moak, also 21.

The truck so far has logged 10,000 miles.
