Autonomous Vehicle Ride Alongs (Cruise & Waymo)

An unbiased look at real-world autonomous vehicle performance & user experience

I’ve started a video series of autonomous vehicle rides.

I was originally inspired by watching Joel Johnson’s (JJRicks’s) videos in 2020. Today, both Cruise and Waymo are running robotaxi services in San Francisco. It’s the first time the general public can experience autonomous driving in a dense urban environment.

My focus will always be offering an unbiased look at AV performance and customer experience in the real world — not highlight reels or contrived scenarios. I hope you enjoy these videos as much as I enjoyed making them!
