May 18, 2020—General Motors' self-driving unit Cruise will lay off workers during the coronavirus pandemic, reported Reuters.

About 8 percent of the staff would be cut, according to an internal email partially read to Reuters. Cruise had 1,800 full-time employees.

The email said layoffs at Cruise include staff at an engineering team in Pasadena, Calif., that works on Lidar, a sensor technology that uses pulsed laser light to sense objects, similar to the way radar uses radio waves.
