Quick Shift: Waymo launches driverless rides in Arizona


Hello from Quick Shift! We’re wrapping up at SXSW and looking forward to the next autonomous vehicle industry event … in two weeks. — Katie Burke

Adult supervision no longer required: Waymo CEO John Krafcik told an audience at SXSW on Tuesday that the company had officially begun offering driverless rides to families participating in its Early Rider program. A company video of the participants show they’re quickly becoming comfortable riding solo in Waymo’s vehicles.

California vs. Trump administration: The EPA said Tuesday that it won’t allow California to dictate upcoming fuel economy regulations. The declaration comes the same day President Donald Trump tweeted his disapproval of the state’s sanctuary policies for illegal immigrants.
