In Waymo abandoned manual control Source:

While the different car manufacturers implement carefully in your new car functions-driving, keeping the steering wheel and other usual controls, Waymo controlled by Google, decided to abandon these remnants of the past. This decision was taken based on the results of studies in which people have shown themselves not the best way.

The head of the company John Krawczyk said that its experts have completely stopped work on manual control and no longer consider the management regimes, which provide for the transfer of control from the autopilot to a living driver. The fact that a person begins to relax, when traveling behind the wheel of Autonomous cars, self-oriented areas. But if the driver is distracted, «yawn» and not always properly might react to a dangerous situation on the road, it is better to completely deprive him of the opportunity to drive a car, than this way to create an emergency hazardous situation on the road!

This solution could be called unfounded, but he had to take it after a series of tests that passed not so long ago in Silicon valley. It was then that the drivers have made it clear that trust them be: during trips driving the car with the autopilot engaged the drivers were talking on the phone, putting on makeup, watching YouTube, and some started «nod» at a speed of 90 kilometers per hour!

Would-be drivers tried to return to earth again to get them to concentrate on the road. To do this, even tried to submit a sharp and very nasty signal, but he has not had the desired effect, so in the Waymo decided that their robomobile will be able to do without the help of people. Such drivers are no pests is not necessary.

«If and to speak about any control on the part of man, then the buttons «start» «stop» control panel will be enough», — summed up his tirade, John Krawczyk.

Now in Waymo plan to move from testing individual components to the complete introduction of the technology of unmanned vehicles. To do this, the company is negotiating with car manufacturers, is working to create a system of Autonomous public transport. In addition, drones Waymo to this place tests in the summer, will soon begin testing in severe winter conditions.
