Disengagement Reports 2018 – Preliminary Results

UPDATED report is now here.

The Disengagement Reports for the period December 2017 to November 2018 for all entities operating under a license testing autonomous vehicles on public roads in California is/was out. As the DMV has taken off the reports after a short period (to be republished later this week), the following is what we got so far.

These 28 companies operated over 321 vehicles (a couple of numbers, including Waymo and Zoox, are missing) for autonomous test drives in California. Many of the companies operate many more test cars in other states and countries.
