Mountain View, California, United States

Waymo is the self-driving technology company with a mission to make it safe and easy for people and things to move around. Building on software and sensor technology developed at Google, Waymo is now launching the world’s first fully self-driving transportation service that will take members of the public from A to B at the touch of a button.

Waymo takes an integrated approach to building the world’s first self-driving car, with researchers, designers, product managers, and technical program managers working side by side. We seek to understand the needs of our users and the opportunities of the technology to ensure we build the best product. From self driving behavior to user interfaces, we work to inspire the product vision and then make it a reality.

Honeycomb is an automotive LiDAR that Waymo designed and built for enabling 3D perimeter perception, and it has an unprecedented field-of-view which makes it ideal for various robotic and sensing applications. Our mission is to accelerate the robotics industry, and our cross-functional product development team works to enable our customers to take full advantage of Honeycomb through both hardware and software features.
