The Everyday Robot Project is prototyping a robotic system that can operate autonomously in unstructured human environments. Teaching robots to help with everyday life requires tackling and integrating some of the hardest hardware and software challenges in the field of robotics today.
The Self-Driving Car project had the goal of developing technology that could transform mobility for millions of people, whether by reducing road deaths caused by human error, reclaiming the billions of hours wasted in traffic, or bringing everyday destinations within reach for those unable to drive.
Project Wing is an autonomous delivery drone service aiming to increase access to goods, reduce traffic congestion in cities, and help ease the CO2 emissions attributable to the transportation of goods.
Loon is a network of balloons, traveling along the edge of space, that extends Internet connectivity to rural areas, fills coverage gaps, and improves network resilience in the event of a disaster.
Verily began life at X as a collection of several projects that use technological advances like machine learning, the miniaturization of sensors, and wearable devices to lead to innovations that could someday help health professionals be more proactive in their treatment of disease.
Glass Enterprise Edition is a wearable, hands-free computing device that intuitively fits into the user’s workflow to help them remain engaged and focused on their work.
Makani energy kites are aerodynamic wings that can generate electricity by efficiently harnessing energy from wind resources that aren’t accessible or cost-effective today.
Malta is a grid-scale renewable energy storage technology that stores electricity as heat in large tanks of molten salt and as cold inside large tanks of chilled liquid.
Project Foghorn aimed to radically reduce carbon emissions by pulling carbon and hydrogen out of seawater and combining it to create a new type of carbon-neutral fuel.
FSOC (Free Space Optical Communications) uses light to transmit high-speed data between two points to significantly accelerate the deployment of the extensive, high-throughput networks necessary to support the future of the web.
Dandelion seeks to make it easier and more affordable to heat and cool homes with a clean, free, abundant, and renewable resource: geothermal energy.
Chronicle is a cybersecurity intelligence and analytics platform that combines machine learning, large amounts of computing power, and considerable amounts of storage to help enterprise teams better manage and understand their security-related data.
Brain aims to take AI and machine learning out of the lab and into everyday products much faster. Brain’s technology currently powers a wide range of products across Google.
X is constantly investigating and prototyping new technologies. These projects are kept under wraps so early stage teams can learn, iterate and return to the drawing board as much as they need to.
More information coming soon.
