Waymo Driverless Trucks Will Be Used to Haul Google Cargo
Google owned Waymo on Friday said that its self driving trucks will haul cargo bound for the internet giant’s data centres in Georgia. Rival Uber made a similar announcement on Tuesday, saying it is using self driving semi trucks to augment human driven rigs in its on coque iphone 5c magpul coque iphone 6 australie demand trucking service in the US state of Arizona.
Waymo driverless trucks will go to coque iphone 5 requin work in the Atlanta area Monday as part coque iphone 5c la redoute of a pilot programme intended to help integrate autonomous big rigs with the operations of shippers, ports, terminals, factories, and distribution centres, according to the company.
“Our software is learning to drive big rigs in much the same way a human driver would coque iphone 6 hippie coque iphone 5 starbucks after years of driving passenger coque iphone 5c trop swag cars,” Waymo said in an online post.
“The principles are the same, but things like braking, turning, coque iphone 7 effet marbre and blind spots are different with a fully loaded truck and trailer.” Human drivers will be on board Waymo trucks to take control if needed.
Waymo for years has been testing self driving cars, racing against smartphone summoned coque iphone 5s troy lee design ride star Uber, whose trucking service coque iphone 7 plus camera uses humans to pick up cargo from Uber Freight customers and drive it in trailers to transfer hubs. There, the trailers are hitched onto self driving trucks for long highway hauls, according to the San Francisco based company. The self driving vehicles head to transfer hubs close to their destinations, where the trailers are connected back onto human steered rigs to coque iphone 6 de paris complete their journeys.
Uber has been testing self driving truck technology since 2016, and coque iphone 6 game over began using autonomous rigs for hauls late last year. The company claims to have made the first commercial shipment ever coque iphone 5c jeep by a self driving truck coque iphone 5s s crew when it hauled a trailer full of Budweiser beer over about 120 miles (193 kilometers) of highway in Colorado.
Paving the road
Autonomous vehicle technology has been touted as having potential to save fuel, ease congestion, and make transportation coque iphone 6 fille disney safer.
Waymo and Uber last month said they had settled a lawsuit over allegedly stolen trade secrets from coque iphone dreams the former Google self driving car project. Waymo filed the suit last year but after four coque iphone 5s louis vuitton supreme days of testimony before a federal judge, Uber agreed to a financial settlement, a source said.
In September, Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao released new guidelines that permit more testing of self driving cars and address regulation between the federal government and states.
She said self driving technology could reduce accidents and improve mobility for the elderly, disabled and other restricted populations.
But coque iphone 7 avenger the non profit Consumer Watchdog warned that roads are being turned “into private laboratories for robot cars with no regard for our safety.”
US states set their own rules for roads, and a handful have passed laws allowing self driving vehicles.
California and Arizona have been particularly encouraging, hoping that companies developing autonomous technology in those states will create local jobs and facilities devoted to a promising new industry.
