Waymo has covered eight million miles driving autonomously

Waymo is has reached another milestone of covering eight million miles driving autonomously. It took the company six years to reach the first million.

Now it takes the company only one month to clock one million miles with 25K miles logged per day in real-world experience, CEO John Krafcik said on Twitter.

The company had hit 4 million miles in November 2017, the rest of 4 miles was covered in just eight months. Apart from this Waymo has driven billions of more miles in a computer simulation called “Carcraft.”

The company is hugely expanding its fleet and has ordered for 62,000 electric Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid minivans. In the next few years, Jaguar I-Pace 20,000 in number is also expected to be added. It is expected to add ride-sharing service later this year.
