Google releases a report about its self-driving car project every month, and now the company has released October’s numbers. There’s not much new information this time around, but numbers like miles driven in both autonomous and manual modes have obviously increased. Interestingly, while the number of self-driving cars on the road has stayed the same, the number of cars on the road in Austin, TX has decreased…
In October’s report, we’re seeing 23 Lexus RX450h SUVs on the streets in total, with 4 of them in Austin. There are 25 of the admittedly cuter prototypes on the roads, with 21 in Mountain View, CA and 4 in Austin, TX. And here are the new record total miles driven since the start of self-driving car project in 2009:
- Autonomous mode: 1,268,108 miles
- Manual mode: 938,621 miles
Interestingly, while Google was just recently boasting about its expansion into Austin, it looks like the Mountain View company has actually pulled some cars from Texas over the last month. Google had 6 of the Lexus cars and 8 of the prototypes in Austin, TX last month, and now there are only 4 of each.
