Robottaxi Technology Service


Normally I wouldn’t worry, but this isn’t a normal ride. It is a Cruise robot taxi with no human driver to close the door.

I go back to check and sure enough, it was a weak push. A human voice pipes up on a speaker checking everything is OK. I apologize about the door, but I also press her. What if I hadn’t come back? We would take care of it, she reassures me.

Driverless robotaxi services open to the public now operate on the dense streets of San Francisco, albeit in limited form.

Cruise, a subsidiary of GM, competes with Waymo, owned by Google’s parent company Alphabet. The cruise began taking fares last June and charges a little less than Uber or Lyft
