Alphabet is signing up the first test riders for its self driving cars
Recode -------- If you live in the Phoenix metropolitan area, you might be able to take Alphabet’s self-driving car to work or school every day. The company has launched an early test of its fleet of Lexus and Chrysler robot cars in Arizona, allowing a limited number of applicants to ride in the cars as frequently as possible at no cost. This is the first test of its kind for Waymo, the newly formed Alphabet subsidiary formerly known as Google’s self-driving car project. Previously, the company only had trained drivers testing its vehicles on public roads. It’s also one of the only public trials of autonomous vehicles of its kind in the U.S. While Uber rolled out commercial tests of its cars long before Waymo, the ride-hail company doesn't guarantee that the car a customer hails will be autonomous and they still have to pay for it.
