Waymo is self-driving car project by Google that has been designed into a separate company, in this case cars that can be controlled by robot can be whizzing around the roads of public as soon as possible. Waymo is designed in order to make people easy and safe during their trip or move around.
Instead of manufacturing the self-driving vehicles, Google is focused on the enhancing the technology which enables these cars to work. This is something that can be the trigger for Apple and a couple of traditional carmakers that are racing in order to be the first company that launches model that has been already produced.
The chief executive of Waymo said at a news conference that they can find their technology being beneficial in logistics, ridesharing, personal cars, or solving a couple of problems that are connected with public transportation. The high-profile program by Google started seven years ago in a lab and after that this car has covered over 2.3 million robot-controlled miles, usually with an engineer on hand if there is something wrong with the project.
But the most important milestone for the company was on October 2015, when the first car project by Google was riding by a blind man in Texas alone with no accompany in the car. Under the parent company Alphabet of Google, Waymo will help the economy every year which oversees projects that have been detached its online search and advertising core business.
The purpose of the Waymo is different from a couple of other automakers in order to produce an autonomous car that needs no intervention from human. Nowadays, the test is focused on the most challenging stuff which cars that have been old-fashioned can face on the road.
According to Mr Krafcik, the former executive for Hyundai said that they believe that this technology car can start to reshape a couple of the 10 trillion miles which motor cars travel around the world each year with more accessible, more efficient, and safer forms of car.
This car is the perfect choice because this can handle the hardest driving tasks such as anticipating unpredictable people will do on the road, mastering multi-lane four-way stops, responding to emergency cars, and also detecting them. The company has created these skills for more than 2 million miles of driving in the real road. And last year, this company has completed one billion miles of simulation testing.
