Alphabet's/Google's Waymo

Phoenix/Chandler AZ are you guinea pigs-ready pioneers of the driverless world? Alphabet's Waymo officially announced its plans to launch an autonomous taxi service in the metropolitan-area of Phoenix after the testing period over the next few months. Waymo’s self-driving Chrysler Pacifica minivans will have light suburban traffic, consistently good weather and good-condition wider roads; better testing program conditions. Hardier Detroit testing program is slated next. Dunno about our LA traffic yet...

Our summer monsoon and its "flooded underpasses" should prove interesting.

Desert flash-flooding would make it a scary off-roading/rapid wash rafting experience.

Is their software "smart" enough to recognize "running water" (of unknown speed & depth) and realize the danger?
