After riding in several driverless cars, how does Waymo's latest compare?


In this April 7, 2021 file photo, a Waymo minivan arrives to pick up passengers for an autonomous vehicle ride, in Mesa, Ariz. Waymo, the Google self-driving vehicle spinoff, is moving to expand its autonomous ride-hailing service to San Francisco. The company says selected 'trusted tester' customers in the city by the bay will be able to hail a ride in self-driving Jaguar I-Pace electric vehicles. — AP

The most remarkable thing about a ride in a robot car is how unremarkable it is.

It is definitely eerie to see the steering wheel turn by itself, the car brake and change lanes without human intervention. But just as with cruise control, it soon feels commonplace.
