Google's Waymo unit announced they're now testing fully self-driving cars on public roads in an area of the Phoenix metro region. These cars have no human driver present and they will soon serve public users. These cars are the result of over eight years of development, Waymo claims they're the safest and most advanced vehicles on the road today. Full details can be read in this Medium post
That’s why the first application of our fully self-driving technology will be a Waymo driverless service. Over the next few months, we’ll be inviting members of the public to take trips in our fully self-driving vehicles. Participants in our early rider program will be amongst the first to experience these fully self-driving rides, using our vehicles to commute to work, take the kids to school, or get home from a night out. When fully self-driving vehicles become part of people’s everyday routine, we can move closer to our goal of making transportation safe and easy for everyone.
Would you try a Waymo car? Or do you want someone else to be an early adopter?
