Waymo stands for a new way forward in mobility. We are a self-driving technology company with a mission to make it safe and easy for people and things to move around. Waymo is determined to improve transportation for people around the world, building on software and sensor technology developed in Google’s labs since 2009. In October 2015, they achieved the world’s first fully self-driving trip on public roads, in a car without a steering wheel or pedals. They refine Waymo technology through one billion miles of simulation testing each year, and our cars have self-driven over two million miles on public roads across four U.S. cities.
