Waymo announces 7 million miles of testing, putting it far ahead of rivals

#Waymo is racking up test miles faster and faster as a commercial launch nears. [Read More]

Summary… * Machine-Made

A #Waymo executive announced on Tuesday that the company's self-driving car fleet would reach 7 million miles of testing this week.
#Waymo made this chart back in February to mark 5 million miles of testing.
It shows that it took #Waymo (then Google) more than a year to get from 1 million to 2 million miles.
Then it took about six months each to get to 3 million and 4 million miles.
Last month, #Waymo announced that it had ordered 62,000 Chrysler Pacifica minivans, on top of the 20,000 Jaguar I-PACE order #Waymo announced in March.

Opinion… * Man-Made

#Waymo drives another million miles of testing in a single month, and says it’s planning to launch a commercial driverless taxi service in the Phoenix area before the end of the year. #Trend
