SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) -- A new study released by Waymo Wednesday is showing that its robotaxis have a 90% lower crash rate than human drivers in San Francisco.
The study covers 7.1 million miles across three cities, including more than 1.5 million in San Francisco- comparing driverless cabs with human drivers.
Waymo's submitted the study to scientific journals to be peer-reviewed, which is a process that's likely to take several months. Meanwhile, some academics have already looked at the study and say it provides reason to positive about the safety of autonomous driving technology.
