At a press conference in San Francisco Google announced on the allocation of a project to develop unmanned vehicles into a separate company.

The new structure was named Waymo. It was headed by the current project Manager Jon Krafcik.

"Now we are an independent company in the holding Alphabet" — said Krafcik

He also noted that last year the Waymo team first tested a fully self-driving car on the streets of Austin in Texas. As a passenger on the trip was attended by the friend of the chief engineer of the project, which officially declared blind.


According to the head of Department on development of unmanned systems Dmitry Dolgova, the company has still a lot of work, including the creation of more quality maps, improved navigation in difficult weather conditions (snowfall or rain), and other tasks.

During the press conference Krafcik also stressed that the aim of the new company is to develop the technology, not necessarily creating cars.

On the eve the media reported that Google decided to abandon the production of its own self-driving cars in favor of cooperation with car manufacturers.

In particular, the company plans to launch a service for the carriage of passengers on robomobile. The first partner should become Fiat Chrysler, which is developing Google's self-driving car based on the minivan Pacifica.
