Waymo leads autonomous vehicle industry on disengagements

Google's self-driving cars, operating under the Waymo name, required human intervention just once every 11,154mi (17,950km) in 2018, comfortably making it the industry leader for disengagements. Waymo vehicles drove a whopping 1.2 million miles (1.93 million kilometres) in California last year, equating to a "50 per cent reduction in the rate of disengagements and a 96 per cent increase in the average miles travelled between disengagements" compared to 2017.

Honda and Google's Waymo in discussions for self-driving tech

Honda has confirmed it is in discussions with Google parent Alphabet Inc for self-driving technology developed by its recently re-branded Waymo company. The news that Google's autonomous vehicle team would be spun off into the new Waymo brand came earlier this month, just one week before the company revealed a self-driving Chrysler Pacifica developed in partnership with the American/Italian car maker. A full 100 of the new people movers will join Waymo's fleet of test cars.
