Waymo inches closer to driverless car launch with repair deal

Google’s spin-off company Waymo has hired AutoNation, America’s largest auto retailer, to maintain and repair its fleeting of driverless vehicles around the country, AutoNation said in a press release. That represents a very positive step for Waymo toward its driverless car and possible ride-sharing launch. “AutoNation will help assure that Waymo vehicles are always in top condition as we bring fully self-driving cars to the public,” Waymo CEO John Krafcik said.
