Waymo runs on the roads of the Autonomous taxi. Even without drivers

Fully Autonomous taxi — already a reality

It is not a secret that quite a long time on some roads tested unmanned vehicles. The popular services taxi even provide an opportunity to use unmanned means of transport. However, at the moment, they are not truly unmanned, because for security reasons they have people to prevent emergency situation if one suddenly arise. But quite a large company Waymo goes further and produces on the road taxi drivers.

, Waymo, automobile division, the Alphabet, start mailing their customers emails. The letter stated that very soon when you order a taxi to their next trip may not be the driver for security. From this we can conclude that the company was finally able to negotiate with the authorities and provide the proper level of security for their Autonomous cars.

So far during testing the performance of unmanned vehicles on the roads of Phoenix, capital of Arizona, and after the full launch of the service unmanned taxi (which, by the way, are modified minivans Chrysler Pacifica) driving a car was always the controlling autopilot drivers. But soon the need for them will disappear. If you get a fully Autonomous car, he will see a special notification in the app Waymo. The original letter you can see on the illustration below.

the text of the letter, which Waymo sends its customers

Waymo Company first began testing its technology in 2009 in mountain view, California. Since then the company has expanded its testing zone to other cities, opened my own business and began to develop their own device to equip their unmanned cars. In 2016 opened a research center in Arizona, which is engaged in the development and improvement of technology and in the year 2017 the first passengers used the services of the Autonomous taxi. In December last year, the company started Waymo One — commercial self-driving taxi service. Thus, in just 10 years, small in the beginning of his career startup has changed the whole automotive industry.

The Introduction of unmanned vehicles will become an important milestone for the company and the industry at large. Now the user Waymo appealed to the Ministry of transport with a proposal to change mandatory requirements to the equipment of the vehicle. In particular, the company wants to abandon embedded in the design of the car steering wheel and pedals to fully .

But all things of the future. At present, there remain a number of questions. For example, it is not clear what restrictions Waymo will establish the travel without a driver and will install it at all. It is likely that the service will operate in «more simple» terms like sparsely populated areas, avoiding the difficult areas and highways to ensure the safety of passengers.
