Will percent by 2017, the Chrysler Pacifica hybrid driverless that will circulate in the streets of the United States. This was announced at the Detroit NAIS John Krafcik CEO Waymo the Google company in charge of developing projects on driving self : “ As the completely autonomous cars will be ready to move we will need more types of vehicles to refine and test our advanced software guides. ” So Krafcik has motivated the choice so from May 2016 inziata collaborazionicon the FCA and that led to the production of one hundred Chrysler Pacifica Minivan Hybrid without drivers for the Waymo fleet. With this great new MPV on the road in test markets also tessterà like other road users, pedestrians and cars, they relazionaeranno with fully autonomous driving technology.
“Getting to the production and assembly of a complete vehicle in a year and a half since the beginning of the project is a testament to the great team work and collaboration between FCA and Waymo engineers. We look forward to having these new vehicles on public roads in 2017, “said Krafcik. the design of autonomous driving undertaken by the Mountain View giant aims to launch, more than one vehicle, a technology adaptable to various types of cars. Just as he said in an interview with Bloomberg Krafick the same. However, Waymo will not be limited, such as Google, to sell software but the entire components tested today on the Chrysler Pacifica and it also consists in a new LiDAR sensor suite, built entirely “home,” that should bring down drastically the costs of the project and ask Waymo compete with other players in the segment, such as Mobileye.
