Waymo Breaks Ground: Driverless Cars Hit Phoenix Freeways

Alphabet-owned Waymo is breaking the norm of self-driving cars avoiding freeways, announcing that its fully driverless vehicles in Phoenix will now navigate higher-speed highways. Initially, the service will be limited to Waymo employees and their friends, later extending to paying passengers on the Waymo One ride-hailing app. The move aims to address customer concerns about longer routes and positions Waymo to collect valuable data for future improvements, particularly for airport trips.
