BBC News published this video item, entitled “Driverless taxis take to the streets of San Francisco – BBC News” – below is their description.

Driverless taxis, or “robotaxis”, have been rolled out on the streets of San Francisco, and BBC technology show Click has been to see how they work.

The vehicles are capable of getting passengers from A to B across the city, but there is one major difference to a traditional taxi or rideshare – they have no driver.

Instead, the cars use self-driving technology to navigate the city streets, with sensors keeping an eye out for other vehicles and pedestrians.

While many have embraced the new technology, some remain cautious about the safety of driverless vehicles.
