Waymo technology is designed to see 360 degrees in every direction, at all times. This constant, vigilant monitoring of the car’s surroundings informs its technology’s driving decisions and can lead to safer outcomes. Waymo’s technology can identify other road users and tell the difference between other drivers, cyclists, pedestrians, and emergency vehicles. The technology uses this information to anticipate what other road users might do next in order to determine what action the self-driving car should take.
