“We found that the better you make the driver assist, the more likely the more likely the human is to check out,” said Krafcik. “The only way to solve it was to go to full autonomy.”
Over the past eight years, Waymo has racked up more than 3.5 million miles of on-road testing. Equally, if not more important, they completed 2.5 billion miles of simulation testing in 2016 alone and are continuing to rack up 10 million miles a day.
