Waymo, which is among the leaders for this technology, expects autonomous vehicles to be able to take over longer distance trucking in the coming years, while allowing human drivers to handle local pickup and delivery routes. Our software is learning to drive big rigs in much the same way a human driver would after years of driving passenger cars. 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.
Waymo announced Friday morning that it's beginning a self-driving truck pilot in Atlanta, Georgia. It said that the software is learning to drive trucks in the same way a human would after years of driving a auto. Now Waymo has confirmed that it is about to kickstart a pilot in Atlanta for self-driving trucks that will be used to cart goods destined for Google's datacenters. There will be a "highly-trained" driver onboard to take over vehicle controls in the event that there is a system malfunction or some other safety-related incident occurs.
Waymo's goal is to eventually integrate this technology into their shipping operations across their network of factories, distribution centers, ports and terminals.

Commercial trucking is seen as one of the biggest areas of opportunity for self-driving technology.
