Waymo CEO: Autonomous cars won't ever be able to drive in all conditions

SiliCON Valley November 13, 2018; It'll be decades before autonomous cars are widespread on the roads -- and even then, they won't be able to drive themselves in certain conditions, the CEO of Waymo said Tuesday.

John Krafcik, head of the self-driving car unit of Google parent company Alphabet, said that though driverless cars are "truly here," they're not yet ubiquitous. And he doesn't think the industry will ever achieve the highest driving rating of being able to drive at any time of year in any weather and any condition.

Instead, "autonomy always will have some constraints," he said.
