Waymo recalled up to 444 of its self-driving vehicles and issued a software update to fix an issue with its automated driving systems.

The NHTSA reported that Waymo’s 5th generation systems released before December 20th inaccurately predicted the movement of towed vehicles.

All affected Waymo vehicles received the repair by January 12th. The recall comes after vandals set fire to a Waymo vehicle in San Francisco using a firework, marking one of the most destructive attacks on a driverless car in the U.S.

Meanwhile, California lawmakers and unions are pushing for laws requiring autonomous trucks to have human drivers amid safety concerns following accidents involving GM and Waymo self-driving taxis.

Separately, electric vehicle maker Lucid recalled 189 of its Air cars to address a software glitch that could cause loss of power, fixing the issue with an over-the-air update in October 2023.
