Not only is Detroit building vehicles people can drive, but now it is producing vehicles that can drive themselves. John Krafcik, CEO of Google self-driving affiliate Waymo LLC, said Monday that its Detroit plant is operating and outfitting fleets of vehicles with its autonomous driving hardware and software. The milestone allows the Alphabet Inc. subsidiary to put its automated "driver" into vehicles at mass scale. Doing so will help Waymo, an acknowledged leader in the self-driving space, to test its technology and expand its robotaxi service. Google self-driving affiliate Waymo LLC's Detroit plant already has outfitted 30 Jaguar I-PACE SUVs with the company's autonomous driving technology.
