Waymo One was supposed to be truly driverless. Seems there's still a "safety driver" in the car. Is Waymo planning to offer rides without a driver? Seems like their progress is going much slower than expected.

    This is true for every single project at Google.

      Uber showed us what rushing a self driving car results in.

      You can make progress on projects without rushing anything. They’re not mutually exclusive

      Google has a ton of bureaucracy which slows it down, that’s true. But this is one area where that might actually be a good thing.

    Google has taken the best decision ever on this subject. The progress is certainly not slow when you compare with the complexity of problem. They are reaching new milestones every six months. No point rushing on ideas which have potential to be next 200 billion dollar business.

    Google is not as reckless as Tesla or Uber. And is certainly a good thing.
