Take a drive in Google’s newest self-driving car

And now there’s a new entry in the self-driving arms race, rolled out at the end of January. It’s a collaboration between Chrysler and Waymo, a spinoff of Google X, the search giant’s highly secretive special projects lab. “Well, [the car is] not exactly grandma-level. It’s assertive, but it’s very safe. It remembers all the steps, every time,” said Nathaniel Fairfield, a roboticist from Carnegie Mellon University and the principal engineer for Waymo.
