A ride in a Waymo driverless car

  • Published on Nov 1, 2019
  • TechCrunch contributor Ed Niedemeyer gets a ride in Waymo's driverless Chrysler Pacifica minivan in the Phoenix suburb of Chandler. The company is starting to match members of its early rider program with driverless rides as it starts scaling up its robotaxi service.

    Considering Waymo recorded the killing of a woman crossing the street. It wouldn't surprise me if this was a front for Big Brother. Mass surveillance is their main priority.

    Or, from another perspective, no more driving the car how you want it, where you want it and with nobody tot know that. It will be :Zzzap!! And your car îs switched off or even more scary, take you to Court without you wanting that.

    I don't think you're telling the truth about how long testing has been going on. Until now nobody believed me. I lived in Phoenix in 2001. A vehicle pulled up next to me at a stop light and there was nobody in it. If you would have said any other place in the world I never would have put the 2 together(this video+my experience). Regardless it's still a really neat concept and I would definitely take a cruise in one

Wouldn't it make more sense to have a real, live, breathing human behind the wheel to take over in case of an emergency. I know I wouldn't let my kids in a autonomous driverless vehicle.

    One issue they haven't commented on is safety from robbers on the road, any person will be able to stop your car with an stop sign or whatever, and then proceed to do its 'business'. Right now you have the option to accelerate and not stop, but its based on a judgement call that the car can't make right now by itself. I hope they address this soon.

    I think Tesla will be first. They have shit loads of data more than Waymo and their approach is very AI and human intervention learning based. Soon there's going to be a million Teslas out there mapping and learning everything. It'll be hard to catch up.

    • ForestNinjaZero
      ForestNinjaZero 2 months ago

      With AI, accuracy = reliability. The algorithm either recognizes the pattern, or it doesn't. Misdetection causes death of passenger, and the volume of data is irrelevant, if the AI can't differentiate road tiles of varying texture/color from sidewalk, which is a major problem for Tesla.

    • krish
      krish 2 months ago

      @ForestNinjaZero yes more accurate but more reliable? Reliability comes with training under many many circumstances. I see only Tesla doing that at scale.

    • ForestNinjaZero

      Their data is Waymo accurate than Tesla's, which is why they can actually train the vehicle for detection of surfaces, lines, and boundaries, without killing anyone.

      Mark Plott You must be the only guy in the world who’s Tesla AP doesn’t ever disengage. Or you don’t even have a Tesla at all and are making shit up. In any case, Waymo’s autopilot is way ahead, and valued at over $100b, is worth more than all of Tesla.

    • Mark Plott
      Mark Plott 2 months ago

      @Bruno Malek - NOPE, as long as you are on the Highway the FSD stays engaged, I can use Lemons to keep FSD from Disengaging and by keeping aware I wont crash into anything.
      there are NOT that many Firetrucks on the Highway.
      when I get Tired, I can have Nav on Autopilot select a Rest location with a Destination charger near Lodging, usually they are FREE to use for Hotel guests.
      or I can Take advantage of a Nearby Supercharger and CAMP in my Tesla with my Dreamcase.

    • Bruno Malek
      Bruno Malek 2 months ago

      Mark Plott The Tesla will disengage hundreds of times on such a long drive. You also have to keep your hand on the wheel the whole time. Sometimes they crash into barriers or fire trucks or tractor trailers and kill you. It’s not even comparable.

    • Mark Plott
      Mark Plott 2 months ago

      @Bruno Malek - lets see what happens when you transport a WAYMO to a NON Geofenced area, the Waymo cant do anything, you can Drive a Tesla from California to New York all by using FSD and it wont get lost and it can even Priotorize Supercharging based on your needs.

    • Bruno Malek

      @Emil Emilio Buddy I agree with what you are saying. But you can't punish everyone. Punish the guilty ones. Everything in life has an element of risk. How many women die from domestic violence. Should we stop people forming relationships & falling in love. They way we're going humans will not be doing anything in the future for fear of risk. Pretty boring existence. Look I truly understand your view. I hate bad & dangerous drivers, believe me. But there are millions & millions of motor enthusiasts who love their cars & driving & who are extremely great drivers. Anyway I'm getting on in yrs, in my 50's. I will probably be dead or incapable of driving due to age when these cars become the norm. Good chat, take care from Australia.

      @Paul Byatt what can you say to the families who lost a loved one from a car accident? Statistics say 1.25 million die from car accident world wide 3k plus per day. Imagine a cruise ship full of passengers dying every single day. In the US alone some 30 thousand plus die every year and that's not even counting the one's who are injured. Will this new technology stop people from dying in a car accident? That's a resounding NO, but it can easily reduce that number to at least half. That's half a million lives saved every year. How do people justify their so called "Freedom"? Don't people often say "Freedom is paid with blood".. on this issue, do we have to?

    Elon can learn a little something from the use of LIDAR. Cameras are not a substitute.

    • Hacking Modern Life
      Hacking Modern Life 2 months ago +1

      @Edward Cox It's not about versatility, it's more about the cost. A LIDAR used to cost around $80k, and now it's still around $7.8k for the car manufacturer. When you're trying to sell a car for $35k, that's a major part of the cost of manufacturing.

    • D B
      D B 2 months ago +1

      @Edward Cox No doubt that he is a visionary, but just like every visionary before him, they eventually lose sight of reality. Even Nikola Tesla lost his way. The AC/DC story is similar to the camera/LIDAR issue. AC won out just like LIDAR is. 22 Auto manufacturers are working with LIDAR systems now. Waymo owns critical LIDAR patents that Tesla doesn't and that's probably the real story.

    • Edward Cox
      Edward Cox 2 months ago +1

      @D B i dont know, his strategy for the company and his manner of speaking (notice the long pauses?) seems very deliberate. People have been doubting every one of Elon's enterprises and now look where they are.

    • D B
      D B 2 months ago +2

      @Edward Cox Except the evidence for LIDAR is literally clear. This is why Waymo is a whole autonomy level above Tesla, and Tesla is still hitting walls and stopped vehicles. Tesla's camera algorithms rely heavily on the data of moving objects and road lines because the cameras can't measure distance without it, and the radar isn't fast enough. This becomes very obvious when you watch a Tesla try to summon in a parking lot. Nothing is moving, yet the technology struggles. There no better technology for navigation or measuring distance than laser. Mark my words, Tesla will be adding some sort of LIDAR system to their cars. Remember Elon didn't start Tesla, he just bought it and forced the real engineers out. He had no previous experience in EVs. Others have been doing it for decades before him. Elon tends to speak before he thinks, and he is not the brains behind Tesla's engineering.

    • Edward Cox
      Edward Cox 2 months ago +1

      Elon said he led development of Lidar on Crew Dragon for supply missions to International Space Station. So he does know the benefits of Lidar, but think it is not versatile enough for driving environments

      @Paul Byatt - NOPE, nice try.
      you can order FSD for just $7,000 (for now) on all Tesla vehicles.
      the model 3 starts at $40,000 and $47,000 is a Bargain when compared to ALL current model ICEV , many of the ICEV only have Safety systems and FSD across the Industry IS way less Advanced than what TESLA can do TODAY.
      Besides, as TIME goes on FSD will become MORE Expensive.
      the BEST thing is you can use FSD for Commutes or Long Road Trips, reducing Stress on the Driver, and keeping them safe.
      even the Cadillac PRO pilot System frequently ENDS on the Highway , making the vehicles LESS safe.
      BONUS, on the Weekend you can use the car Without FSD but still with the TESLA safety systems.

      Ya, driving is the number one job in the US but still, there is a shortage of drivers.

    Which is better, 10 billion miles of simulation in real world with the owners and the public, or in computer?

      @Ron Pedersen He's a Tesla fanboy who thinks Tesla Robo Taxis will be the first autonomous vehicles on the road so he has to trash Waymo. That's my guess.

      I want to make it clear, that Waymo's 10 billion miles of simulation in computer are full of edge cases and more legit than those 1 billion Autopilot miles which merely serve as a validation (and we the owners are average testers). Besides, Autopilot miles do not equate to fully autonomous miles.
