So, as Waymo said, be sure to keep a beady eye out for the self-driving trucks if you're a resident of Atlanta.
Waymo said: 'The principles are the same, but things like braking, turning and blind spots are different with a fully-loaded truck and trailer.
To accomplish this, Waymo will be teaming up with Google's logistics team to accelerate the development of their self-driving semi truck technology and "integrate it into the operations of shippers and carriers". It's doing this through the same way you'd each anyone with passenger vehicle driving experience on how to drive a semi truck.
Now, the company's much larger truck will be using some of the same data and systems to navigate Atlanta.
Waymo said the self-driving trucks' test runs on Atlanta roads will help the company develop their technology further. There will, of course, be highly trained drivers in the cabs in case anything goes awry. That would mean a truck that can drive itself all the way from one loading dock to another-no safety driver, transfer hub, or remote operator needed.

Uber has been using its self-driving trucks to transport goods in Arizona.
The race is heating up to remove the driver and get autonomous freight trucks on the road.
Self-driving trucks could be quite interesting, since trucking is a very vital part of our economy. Trucking is a $700 billion industry in the U.S. About 70 percent of the nation's freight by weight moves via trucks, according to the American Trucking Associations.
Now that Waymo is free of its long-running legal battle with Uber, it is focusing its attention on more important endeavors; namely spreading its self-driving technology to more platforms. "With Waymo in the driver's seat, we can reimagine many different types of transportation - from ride-hailing to logistics", explains the company in a blog post.
