Google Retires Its Mini Self-Driving Vehicle

Google’s sister company Waymo is retiring its autonomous “Firefly” vehicles. The small pod was conceived back in 2013 and became a two-seater dome prototype. Waymo will now focus on integrating its self-driving technology into the Chrysler Pacifica minivan in an effort to bring the technology to the mass market. But Fireflies won’t be forgotten; they’ll be seen in various museums across the country starting in August.
