Waymo could win against Uber in the competition to initiate a self-driving can service. The Alphabet Incorporation has been willing to launch a business of self-driving cars from the recent times; having assigned the Google engineers and its spin-off firm later, along with Waymo’s generating the independent technology of the vehicle.
Uber’s self-driving cars are returning to public roads for the first time after the fatal crash. Uber has officially started its self-driving vehicles services on public roads. Nearly eight months ago, an Uber vehicle hit a woman as she was crossing a street in Tempe, Arizona street on a bicycle in the dark. Immediately following that incident, Uber halted testing its self-driving cars on public roads, but they haven’t announced any timeline for restarting the program yet.
In the past few years, the possibilities of self-driving cars have gone from “impossible” to “commercially available”. Technology has become so developed that the things which we think were impossible, now actually exist. In the past few years Google was working to build the concept of self-driving cars, and in December 2018 Google self-driving car came up under the name of Waymo and it commercially started the service in the suburbs of Phoenix. But it’s just a start, Waymo will increase its availability and capability over some time.
