The company Waymo, which is developing a system of autonomous transport, announced an important achievement. The company’s cars have already traveled 10 million miles – this is 16 million kilometers.
On this occasion, Waymo released a video in which engineer Nathaniel Fairfield spoke about the benefits of autonomous transport. For example, unlike the driver, the car sees the road equally well during the day and at night, which means that at night the traffic safety is higher. The same with sandstorm and other natural phenomena.
Plus, higher reaction speed: the car instantly hit the brakes when the ball rolled onto the road. In short, the car is never distracted, which is characteristic of man.
Waymo was founded in 2016. It is a subsidiary of Alphabet, which also includes Google.
