Blink once and you miss the self-driving revolution. How else can we explain that 2016 became the year of autonomous cars? It’ no secret that self-driving cars have been roaming Californian streets for years. In fact, currently there are 20 companies with a test license.

But that until 2016 the number of autonomous taxi fleets reaches the number six, and that more companies announced their own self-driving taxi fleets to come is simply breath taking. And that are just the taxi fleets, without even counting autonomous buses or other vehicles.

Here is the current list:

Pittsburgh Uber September 2016
Wuzhen Baidu November 2016
