Waymo LLC is an American autonomous driving technology development company. It is a subsidiary of Alphabet Inc, the parent company of Google. Waymo originated in 2009 as Google X's Project Chauffeur. Project Chauffeur, also known as "Google's self-driving car project", spun-out into a stand-alone company in December 2016. Co-founded by Sebastian Thrun and Anthony Levandowski, Waymo is now run by CEO John Krafcik.
In April 2017, Waymo started a limited trial of a self-driving taxi service in Phoenix, Arizona. On December 5, 2018, the service launched a commercial self-driving car service called "Waymo One"; users in the Phoenix metropolitan area use an app to request a pick-up. In May 2020, Waymo announced its first outside funding round of $2.25 billion. On June 25, 2020, Waymo announced a partnership with Volvo to integrate Waymo’s self-driving technology into their vehicles.
