Uber May Be Aflame, But Its Self-Driving Cars Are Getting Good

December 28, 2017View for printing

A world dominated by self-driving cars is no longer just possible, it's inevitable. And the proof is everywhere. In Arizona, where Waymo (formerly known as Google's self-driving car project) is testing minivans sans humans inside. In Boston, where Lyft and robocar outfit Nutonomy are schlepping Patriots fans to and fro. In Sweden, where Volvo is testing its autonomous tech on impossibly photogenic families.

These pilot projects aren't just public relations stunts. They're crucial for any company eager to bring this technology to market, because they pit the vehicle not just against the wild world, but against the people it will someday transport for money.
