The relationship between FCA (Fiat-Chrysler) and Waymo, the “cars automatization” section of Google, continues.
In 2016, FCA supplied 100 Chrysler Pacifica to Waymo, in 2017 they were 500 and now FCA has announced that they will provide “thousands” in the new year to create Taxis.
Why are such projects so important? The reason is given directly by Waymo with data on car accidents.
1.25 million deaths from motor vehicle accidents in 2014.
32625 dead only in the US in the same year.
6% increase in accidents in 2016.
94% of accidents depend on human errors.
Done the ugly but dutiful clarification, we must now see the positive side of the coin. So let’s take a look at the videos that explain how these Taxis work.
