In parts of Arizona, “fully” autonomous ride hailing services from Waymo One are now available to the general public. This has come after months of testing by Waymo, the autonomous driving technology company owned by Alphabet, Google’s parent company. Until recently, Waymo One’s fully autonomous service was only available to a select group of participants who signed a NDA to take part in a trial study in Phoenix. The newly available ride hailing cars are particularly notable because there are no supervised safety operators in the front seat of the vehicles. They are fully autonomous, marking a huge milestone for Waymo, and for the entire autonomous vehicle industry.
