General

¿Qué es Waymo?
Waymo es una empresa de tecnología de vehículos autónomos cuya misión es lograr que pasajeros y objetos lleguen a su destino de manera fácil y segura. Desde el inicio como el proyecto de vehículo autónomo de Google en 2009, Waymo se ha enfocado en construir Waymo Driver, el World’s Most Experienced DriverTM (el conductor más experimentado del mundo) para mejorar el acceso de todas las personas a la movilidad, al mismo tiempo que salva miles de vidas que se podrían haber perdido en accidentes automovilísticos.
¿Por qué Waymo desarrolla vehículos completamente autónomos?
We’re committed to developing fully autonomous vehicles because we believe that this is safer and better for all those who share our roads.

Around the world, over 1.35 million people die on our roadways annually. In the US alone, traffic collisions kill over 35,000 people a year. In the U.S., 94% of crashes involve human error or choice, and this is one place where we believe we really can bring technology to bear. Autonomously driven vehicles could also help people who can't drive—whether elderly, blind, or disabled—to get around and do the things they love.

In addition, truck crashes cause 4,000 deaths and a further 110,000 people are injured in commercial truck-related crashes annually in the U.S. With Waymo Via, we’re hoping to make highways safer by integrating the Waymo Driver to operate commercial trucks.
¿Qué tipos de vehículos usan?
Our fleet of autonomously driven vehicles has included modified Toyota Priuses, Lexus SUVs, a custom-built prototype vehicle (nicknamed "Firefly"), and our fully autonomous Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid minivans. The Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid minivans are our first vehicles built on a mass-production platform with a fully-integrated hardware suite, newly designed by Waymo for the purpose of full autonomy.

Most recently, we’ve partnered with Jaguar and leveraged their I-PACE platform to create the world's first premium electric autonomously driven vehicle. We’re currently testing these vehicles.

With Waymo Via, we're also integrating Class 8 trucks with the Waymo Driver to operate autonomously. This includes combining the World’s Most Experienced DriverTM with Daimler’s Freightliner Cascadia to enable fully autonomous truck driving.
¿Qué es Waymo Via?
Waymo Via es nuestra solución de conducción autónoma para trasladar bienes. Actualmente, estamos probando camiones pesados Clase 8 operados por Waymo Driver en California, Arizona, Texas y Nuevo México. También estamos realizando pruebas de entregas locales en Arizona con nuestra flota de camionetas híbridas Chrysler Pacifica completamente autónomas. Obtén más información.
¿Qué es Waymo Driver?
At Waymo, we're focused on building the Waymo Driver, which is how we refer to our autonomous driving technology. There are two pieces to the Waymo Driver: hardware and software. On the hardware side, we have a sensor suite that includes lidar, cameras, radar, and a powerful AI compute platform. Collectively, they provide a 360 degree view of the world. On the software side, we take all of the information our sensors collect to answer four key questions: Where am I? What’s around me? What will happen next? And what should I do? Together, our hardware and software work in concert to paint a complete picture of the world around the car and enable us to navigate roads safely.
