(video) Part of our 1,000+ mile challenge: Driving autonomously from Mountain View to San Francisco

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 Mountain View to San Francisco route via Highway 1. The full route was about 100 miles long and took almost 4 hours, fully autonomous.
