Waymo logged 635,868 autonomous miles in California last year

Waymo, Alphabet’s self-driving car outfit, says it significantly lowered the number of times that a driver had to take over from autonomous mode in 2016. In the last year, it dropped its “rate of disengagements” from .80 per 1,000 miles to .20. Also interesting, the company logged 635,868 autonomous miles in 2016 on California roadways. That’s more than any other company testing self-driving car tech in that state.
