Waymo takes hands off the wheels in latest driverless vehicle testing
Nov. 29, 2017
A self-driving car company announced it will begin sending its Chandler fleet out on the road with no human in the driver’s seat.
This next step taken by car development company Waymo, a subsidiary of Google’s parent company Alphabet Inc., means Chandler residents part of the company’s testing program will ride in the backseat alongside a Waymo engineer. The engineer will monitor the vehicle, but driving the car will be left to technology.
Jay Tibshreany, Mayor for the City of Chandler, say the addition of autonomous vehicles onto the roads has been a fairly simple process. Waymo began testing in Chandler earlier this year.
