Los Angeles is about to get its first car. Waymo, the self-driving division of Google’s parent Alphabet, said Monday it will begin testing its special vehicles in the U.S. metropolitan area. But whether the company is allocating part-time jobs to the city in its new strategic plan is still unclear.
For starters, Waymo is bringing three vehicles (all small Chivsler Pacifica) to the LA map, to the city center and to the Miracle Mile. Cars are hand-towed for the safety of drivers. Waymo will have a map in the 3D area, and the company will start operating its vehicles in a unique manner, although Waymo has no plans to launch a bike service in the city.
Waymo read it me te un tweet, he said he would explore “how Waymo technology can fit into the transportation environment and fill the City’s creative approach to transportation.”
It is useful to choose the words, and consider the arguments related to the use of the LA Office for Offices a digital tool called the Data Testing movement (MDS) to have, in real time, electric scooters and other transmission motor devices operating in its path. E-scooter companies want to distribute information to the city as a prerequisite for obtaining permits to run scooters in LA. It is similar to the air traffic control system for land vehicles.
Proponents of her case have been working to make the actual transcript of this statement available online. But analysts say it is not possible to expand to include e-scooters. Special vehicles, for example, may be included in the MDS scheme.
“We wanted to create something for the future,” Seleta Reynolds, LADOT general manager, said in an interview with The Tip. «We do not understand what will happen next. But we want to be prepared for what we know is coming. “
A spokesman for Waymo did not respond to questions about whether the company had agreed to share information with LADOT.
