Would You Ride In The World’s First Completely Self-Driving Car?
This company originally started out working in partnership with Google. However, after going out on their own and developing their company even more, we finally have the world's FIRST completely self-driving car.
And though fairly small, this thing is pretty cool!
Waymo stands for a new way forward in mobility. We started as the Google self-driving car project in 2009 and we are now an independent self-driving technology company with a mission to make it safe and easy for people and things move around. In 2015, we invited Steve Mahan, former CEO of the Santa Clara Valley Blind Center, for a special ride. Steve had ridden in our cars in the past—first accompanied by a test driver in 2012 and then on a closed course in 2013. This time was different. Steve experienced the world’s first fully self-driving ride on public roads, navigating through everyday traffic with no steering wheel, no pedals, and no test driver.
