Used Semi Trucks For Sale In Ga – Waymo, the development division of self-driving vehicle technology from Alphabet / Google, will launch a new self-driving truck pilot program in Atlanta, Georgia, a company spokesman has revealed. The self-driving truck in question will operate to support the local Google data center – with trucks carrying cargo to and from the data center in question.
It should be noted that this announcement was not long after Uber announced that it would begin testing semi-driving trucks on its own on the Arizona highway; and also a few days after Tesla announced that it would begin testing its all-electric Semi, with a prototype used to transport cargo between Gigafactory 1 in Nevada and the company’s Fremont manufacturing facility.

Of course, the fact that the announcement happened so close to each other was not a coincidence, right?
Regarding the Waymo self-driving truck, the company actually began testing them in California and Arizona last summer. As you may realize now, Waymo seems far ahead of most of its competitors in the self-driving vehicle sector.
“Because our trucks that drive themselves hit highways in this region, we will have highly trained drivers in the cabin to monitor the system and take control if needed,” as explained in the article by Waymo.
“If you are in the Atlanta area, look for a bright blue Waymo truck that makes a run,” read blog posts from Waymo.
Reuters provides the context: “Autonomous vehicles offer a multi-billion dollar opportunity to remake urban transportation systems, and companies ranging from Tesla Inc. and Apple Inc. to traditional car makers such as Ford and General Motors compete to dominate the market.
“Waymo, who is one of the leaders for this technology, expects autonomous vehicles to be able to take over long-distance trucks in the coming years, while allowing human drivers to handle local pickup and delivery routes.”
Which might be a fairly reasonable approach from a business perspective – with heavy truck logistics operations in urban environments that require far more on the “human touch” path than no highway operations.
