Replaying real life: how the Waymo Driver avoids fatal human crashes

Today, we’re releasing the results of a study into how the Waymo Driver might perform in such tragic situations, which builds on the research that we released in October. While the October study showed that the Waymo Driver was only involved in minor collisions over more than 6 million miles driven in reality on public roads, our most recent study shows how the Waymo Driver likely would have performed in the majority of fatal crashes that occurred on the same roads over a 10 year period.
