Zoox

(Zoox, Inc., Foster City, CA, www.zoox.com) A company designing a self-driving taxi from the ground up rather than retrofitting existing vehicles. With seats that face each other, the Zoox design is entirely self-driving without a steering wheel or brake pedal. Founded in 2014, California approved the use of its vehicles for self-driving taxi transportation in 2018. In 2020, Zoox was acquired by Amazon, and California gave testing permission for its self-driving cars. See self-driving car.
