We’ve put our technology through the world’s longest and toughest ongoing driving test. We've now driven over 10 million miles on public roads and 7 billion miles in simulation. That’s hundreds of years of human driving experience that benefits every vehicle in our fleet. With every mile we drive, we never stop learning.

We’ve put our technology through the world’s longest and toughest ongoing driving test. We've now driven over 10 million miles on public roads and 7 billion miles in simulation. That’s hundreds of years of human driving experience that benefits every vehicle in our fleet. With every mile we drive, we never stop learning.

Our test locations

We’ve tested our self-driving vehicles across multiple locations in the U.S. By driving every day in different types of real-world conditions, we teach our cars to navigate through all sorts of situations.

Where am I?

Before our cars drive in any location, our team builds our own detailed three-dimensional maps that highlight information such as road profiles, curbs and sidewalks, lane markers, crosswalks, traffic lights, stop signs, and other road features.

What's around me?

Our sensors and software scan constantly for objects around the vehicle—pedestrians, cyclists, vehicles, road work, obstructions—and continuously read traffic controls, from traffic light color and railroad crossing gates to temporary stop signs. Our vehicles can see up to three football fields away in every direction.

What will happen next?

Our software predicts the movements of everything around us based on their speed and trajectory. It understands that a vehicle will move differently than a cyclist or pedestrian. The software then uses that information to predict the many possible paths that other road users may take.

What should I do?

Based on all this information, our software determines the exact trajectory, speed, lane, and steering maneuvers needed to progress along this route safely.
