The company has announced its plans to collaborate with lawmakers, first responders, and community organizations in the region as it deploys its Waymo One driverless services to the public. As part of this announcement, a teaser video was released showcasing Waymo’s ride-hailing services, featuring passengers in their robotaxis that have undergone testing in San Francisco and around Phoenix, Arizona. Additionally, the company has applied to the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) to extend its driverless deployment service to include Los Angeles. Waymo will also continue to engage with local policymakers, first responders, and community organizations in that area.
Waymo’s progress is in contrast to Elon Musk’s promises of Full Self-Driving (FSD) capabilities for Tesla’s vehicles. Despite almost 10 years of promises, Tesla owners still need to hold on to the steering wheel to prevent FSD from causing accidents. This highlights the advancements and reliability of Waymo’s driverless technology.
