Just Press Go: Waymo’s Self-Driving Cars Are Here

Recording: Just Press Go: Waymo’s Self-Driving Cars Are Here , Mar 13, 2018


John Krafcik


Waymo’s goal is to build the world’s most experienced driver that can take people and things anywhere with just the press of a button. After 9 years and more than 4 million miles, what started as a Google moonshot is becoming a reality. For nearly a year now, members of the public in Arizona have been using Waymo’s self-driving vehicles to run errands, commute to work, or even pick up their kids from soccer practice. Later this year, Waymo will launch its driverless ride-hailing service in the Greater Phoenix area. Hear from Waymo CEO John Krafcik about how it is readying Waymo’s technology for the road by putting its vehicles through the longest, toughest ongoing driving test, and how Waymo plans to deliver on the promise of this transformational technology.
