Designing for Scale
We believe solutions of this scale come from partnering closely with automakers and testing our fleet in multiple cities — to gain as much driving experience across as many diverse driving conditions as possible. Today, we’re testing our self-driving cars in six U.S. cities: Austin, Detroit, Miami, Palo Alto, Pittsburgh, and Washington, D.C., with an additional office in Central New Jersey.
Our team is focused on this core challenge: every city has unique road user behavior, traffic management infrastructure and laws or regulations. It’s only by driving in these challenging environments every day that we’re able to teach our self-driving platform to safely handle a wide range of scenarios.
