Introducing Waymo Pet – a self-driving service for pets


If pets could travel in self-driving
cars, where would they go? Lots of places – probably parks, the mall, everywhere
except maybe the vet. How was your ride? Today we’re thrilled to announce our
newest pet project here at Waymo – Waymo Pet – a self-driving car service
exclusively for pets. My job is to reimagine the riding
experience for variety of pets. Mittens is in total control of the riding
experience, but never taxed by the stresses of driving. Research tells us
that cats love laser pointers and our laser show is custom for Mittens. With
hamsters, it’s not about relaxing in the backseat.
It’s about staying productive. They run but they overheat. Hence this hamster
wheel cooling system. Keeps the hamsters occupied. It keeps them cool. Two birds so to speak. Actually, we have two birds. Freedom, flexibility, fun. That’s Waymo Pet.

  • Focus on your technology instead of this stupid prank. You are over a decade away from fully autonomous vehicles.

  • I knew that the blind and kids could now have cars for pets to come and go as that want. Cool!Β  not being able to read that will not be upset by any warnings / risks about self drivers . So Cool!Β Β  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jYgsXX5aCJ0

  • I mean if u put the animal in a cage and someone is receiving it…. it can actually happen

    …. they still have a driver just in case

  • There would just be hundreds of cars showing up at the closest pet shop looking for treatsπŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

    Planet-sized computers dominate the Local Group; humanity's descendants are a Type 3 civilisation on the Kardashev scale

    Purely biological (non-cyborg) humans are exceedingly rare now. The very few which do remain comprise only a tiny fraction of the total sentient minds in existence. Though free to come and go as they please, they have practically zero influence in any governmental systems on Earth or elsewhere, being regarded as wholly subordinate to AIs and other entities. As a species, homo sapiens has continued to evolve over time. This has led to a further increase in cranial size, a near-total absence of hair, an elongation of limbs, a more robust and capable immune system, and increased lifespan.

    The vast majority of humans have long since abandoned these primitive biological forms, making the transition to machines or other substrates and achieving practical immortality. The entire Milky Way galaxy has been explored by these transhumans and their sentient ships.

    Faster-than-light travel is now possible using Alcubierre drives, which are compact and miniaturised enough to be found in even personal, single-occupancy vessels. These use such colossal amounts of power that they cause the fabric of space ahead of a ship to contract, while the space behind it expands. This bypasses the laws of relativity, allowing travel to even neighbouring galaxies such as M31 (Andromeda) and M33 (Triangulum).

    Planet-sized computers are being constructed throughout the Local Group of galaxies, with every available resource going towards their production. All of the "dead" worlds, comets, moons and asteroids considered uninhabitable are being converted into these machines, forming a vast network millions of light years across space. Each computer is capable of instant communications with any other, regardless of distance.

    A number of alien intelligences have been contacted by now. In addition, ancient ruins have been uncovered on some worlds, indicating advanced civilisations that somehow failed or destroyed themselves in the distant past. Millions of other planets have been discovered to have ecosystems brimming with plant, animal, and other life. Most of the fauna being catalogued is small and insect-like, but some is more developed with intelligence comparable to higher mammals such as dolphins, monkeys and cats.
