The Alphabet subsidiary will be the first to make such a move.

 

The field of autonomous driving has undergone a significant evolution in recent times and the technology giants want to be an active part in their development.

Waymo , the Alphabet subsidiary for driverless cars, has just announced that it will soon start marketing autonomous minivans , they stand out in Bloomberg .

The Californian company will conduct the tests of these autonomous taxis with volunteer passengers, and will do so in a limited area of ​​the city of Phoenix.

John Krafcik, CEO of Waymo, has stated that they want “the experience of traveling with Waymo to become part of the user’s routine, so that they turn to it in their day-to-day life.”

The executive stressed that Waymo’s service will soon reach the market and will allow people to hire cars through a mobile application , as is the case with already consolidated platforms such as Uber and Lyft.

Waymo’s handicap in the autonomous car business lies in the fact that does not have the capacity to produce its own vehicles , something Ford and Uber do.
