Waymo releases its first-ever Safety Report

Waymo’s Safety Report also addresses the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) federal policy framework for autonomous vehicles: Automated Driving Systems 2.0: A Vision for Safety. The DOT framework outlines 12 safety design elements, and encourages companies testing and deploying self-driving systems to address each of these areas. Over the course of our Report, we will outline the processes relevant to each safety design element and how they underpin the development, testing, and deployment of fully self-driving vehicles.
