Waymo will begin self-driving semi truck pilot in Atlanta next week


Moving onto trucks is possible because of the experience that the engineers and AI experts has gained in Waymo's autonomous passenger vehicles (five million road/five billion simulation miles traveled, apparently).

Waymo said that Atlanta is one of the largest USA logistics hubs, which is why it makes sense to test its autonomous trucks there with Google's cargo.

This should make the extra investment of this version of the game worthwhile, even if you might have purchased it before. The new Switch version includes new miniature courses based on various Kingdoms in the Super Mario Odyssey game.

Waymo announced Friday morning that it's beginning a self-driving truck pilot in Atlanta, Georgia. They use the same sensor suite that Google uses on its autonomous Pacifica minivan test platform, and make use of the same software that helped Waymo achieve fully driverless trials in Arizona, the company notes.

The firm chose Atlanta because it's one of the biggest logistics hubs in the US, and Google's logistical operations also take place from there.

The new action comes after the United States introduced safeguard measures against Korean washers and solar panels earlier this year.

"On behalf of the State of Georgia, I am proud to welcome Waymo to Atlanta's community of industry leaders", said Georgia Governor Nathan Deal in a statement. "Nowhere is this economic development tool more apparent than in Atlanta, the nation's leading logistics hub".

"This pilot will let us further develop our technology and integrate it into the operations of shippers and carriers, with their network of factories, distribution centers, ports, and terminals", Waymo added.

Further, Joe Belfiore stated that there was confusion about this version of the OS from Microsoft's partners and consumers. It's also worth considering the timing of the next Windows 10 update , which probably means northern Autumn 2018.

Commercial trucking is seen as one of the biggest areas of opportunity for self-driving technology. Of course, self-driving trucks aren't yet ready for full autonomy - there will be a driver present in the cab at all times, much as with cars.
