Waymo’s fully autonomous cars enter US roads


Waymo, formerly known as Google’s self-driving car, now owned by Google parent Alphabet, is launching a fully autonomous ride-hailing service with no human driver behind the wheel.

Recently, Waymo team tested the vehicles on public roads in Arizona and ride-hailing service project was announced by the company’s CEO John Krafcik at a tech conference in Lisbon.

The public will begin riding in its fleet of modified Fiat Chrysler Pacifica minivans outfitted with self-driving technology in the next few months. Initially, passengers will be accompanied by a Waymo employee, in the back seat, but eventually, riders will be able to travel alone in the fully autonomous car.
