Waymo, Google’s self-driving vehicle company, recently announced that their autonomous vehicles hit a new milestone with a total of 8 million miles on all public roads.
“Our cars have been on the move! Waymo has now self-driven over 8 million miles on public roads across 25 U.S. cities, and over 5 billion miles (about 8 billion kilometers) in simulation,” Waymo tweeted Friday.
The self-driving unit of Google’s parent company Alphabet said the new figure doubles the total number of miles that it has traveled since 2017.
Waymo’s self-driving cars are now traveling 25,000 miles (about 40,000 kilometers) every day, which is twice what the average American drives in a whole year, the firm said in a Facebook post.
“We’re building the world’s most experienced driver and preparing to launch our fully self-driving service,” Waymo said on Twitter.
