Sharing our safety framework for fully autonomous operations
Now that we’ve opened up our fully autonomous ride-hailing service to the public, we’re also sharing in detail the safety framework that explains the processes we use to drive fully autonomously on public roads and validate the safety of our operations.
In the cab with the Waymo Driver: How trucks help advance our self-driving technology
In 2017, after nearly a decade of developing self-driving technology for passenger cars, we launched our trucking and local delivery program now known as Waymo Via. Since then, our autonomous Class 8 trucks have been tested in a wide variety of cities and environments in California, Georgia, Arizona, New Mexico and Texas. Utilizing the same core technology stack across all of our vehicles allows us to bring fully driverless trucks to the market safely and quickly.
Waymo is opening its fully driverless service to the general public in Phoenix
Five years ago this month, Steve Mahan, the retired director of the Santa Clara Valley Blind Center, who lost his sight years before, took the world's first ride in a self-driving car on public roads. This little car, called Firefly, had a top speed of just 25 mph, and used a combination of lidar, radar, cameras, and massive on-board computing power to navigate the busy streets of Austin, Texas.
Introducing the 5th-generation Waymo Driver: Informed by experience, designed for scale, engineered to tackle more environments
At Waymo, we’re building the World's Most Experienced Driver - our combination of hardware, software, and compute that powers vehicles to safely get people and things where they’re going.
