Watch Waymo remove safety drivers from autonomous taxis for the first time

Watch Waymo remove safety drivers from autonomous taxis for the first time Phoenix, Arizona is home to the world's first fully driverless robot taxi service. Google sibling Waymo now has driverless cars on public roads, with no one behind the wheel. The autonomous Chrysler Pacifica minivans had kept safety drivers onboard, ready to take over in emergencies or when the vehicle fails to navigate on its own. But Waymo has let its cars off the leash in Phoenix, AZ, giving them permission to drive entirely on their own. A... [Lire la suite]

Senior citizens will lead the self-driving revolution

Senior citizens will lead the self-driving revolution With 125,000 residents, over 54,000 homes, 32 square miles, 750 miles of road, and three distinct downtowns, The Villages in Florida is one of the largest retirement communities in the US. It’s also been described as a raunchy, booze-filled boomtown for those who want to fill their twilight years line-dancing and no-strings-attached sex. And starting soon, it will have another distinction to brag about: a fleet of robot taxis. Voyage, a startup that has been... [Lire la suite]

It’s one thing for a self-driving car to navigate the sunny freeways around Phoenix. It’s another thing entirely to survive the streets of Manhattan or Detroit, much less in a snowstorm. That’s why industry experts are watching where carmakers, automotive suppliers and technology companies decide to launch autonomous car fleets. They say companies that successfully roll out robotic cars in congested cities prone to extreme weather will send a strong signal as to who’s leading and who’s playing catch-up in developing the cars of the...
