Waymo One is a dispatch service using an automatic driving car Waymo has continued development and public road testing. In the meantime, the area will be narrowed down to the four areas of Chandler, Tempe, Mesa and Gilbert in the outskirts of Phoenix, Arizona, but services can be used at any time of 24 hours / 7 days a week.
When using Waymo One, you specify your whereabouts and destinations with the smartphone application. Then, it shows the place where you can get on and off safely, so if you have no problem tap the "Request Ride" button and the automatic driving car will come.
Waymo staff will sit in the driver 's seat for safety and monitor traveling at the stage immediately after the service is started. While driving, it shows how the in-vehicle AI recognizes the surrounding situation on the display inside the car.
We can only use Waymo One, which has just begun service, to only about 100 volunteers who have participated in the Waymo exam program so far. In addition, although the provision area is also limited as described above, in the future the target and target area will be expanded.
