(video) Part of our 1,000+ mile challenge: Driving autonomously along Sunset Boulevard

In early 2009, when Waymo was first founded as the “Google Self-Driving Car Project,” Google founders Sergey Brin and Larry Page challenged our first engineers to drive autonomously without human intervention or disengagements along ten challenging 100-mile routes in our home state of California. By December 2009, the team had completed their first route, and nine months later in mid 2010, we had wrapped up the last.

This was part of the Santa Barbara to Hollywood route, which was about 100 miles, and took 2.5 hours, fully autonomous.

Watch the rest of our 1,000+ mile challenge here:
