Google's autonomous car company is now testing out self-driving trucks

Google's autonomous car company is now testing out self-driving trucksWaymo is taking its self-driving tech to an entirely new class of vehicles. The autonomous car company, which famously spun off as an independent entity after years of development as the Google X self-driving car project, was recently spotted running tests on something other than its instantly recognizable fleet of Waymo-branded Chrysler Pacifica minivans: a truck.   A photo recently obtained by
BuzzFeed News appears to show a Waymo truck, which company reps confirmed to be genuine. Until the image surfaced, Waymo was only thought to be developing its autonomous driving platform on its cars, Lexus SUVs, and minivans, which have been extensively promoted as it ramps up its efforts with a public self-driving program in Phoenix.      SEE ALSO: Russia's Google rival just jumped into the self-driving car race When reached for comment by
Mashable via email, a Waymo rep shared the same statement given to
BuzzFeed: Waymo is currently testing just one truck, reportedly a Class 8 Peterbilt, outfitted with the company's self-produced autonomous platform. A company spokesperson confirmed to
Mashable that the company is currently conducting tests on a private track at its facility in California, and that the truck has also made it out to public streets — with a human operator behind the wheel controlling it manually at all times — to collect the road data essential for the autonomous platform's development. The Waymo rep also confirmed to us that the road testing efforts will be expanded to Arizona later this year. Trucking and autonomy The move to bigger vehicles isn't a shocker for Waymo — the company has made it clear that it's focused on more than just consumer transportation and has its sights on the future of mobility on the whole, through statements made by CEO John Krafcik and aggressive moves outside the direct consumer market, like its deal with Lyft.  Self-driving trucks could transform an entire industry. Autonomous vehicles could increase productivity and efficiency along freight routes, making the job easier for drivers — and they could fill the gap to combat the projected driver shortage facing the industry in the coming years. By using its autonomous platform on trucks, Waymo could play a big part in transforming American highways.  But it's far from the first player to enter the self-driving truck space. There are projects currently in the works from established companies like PACCAR, the manufacturer behind the Peterbilt brand, which is working with Nvidia, and smaller independent startups like Embark, which is testing its platform on Nevada highways. Perhaps the most notable project is the Uber-owned Otto, which successfully delivered an autonomous freight of beer last year.  Waymo's parent company, Alphabet, is in the midst of a contentious lawsuit with Uber that could stifle or even shutter Uber's own self-driving development efforts. The dispute stems from Otto's founder, Anthony Levandowski, a former Google (and now former Uber) employee accused of stealing company secrets and using them for Otto and then Uber. Meanwhile, the only other company that comes close to matching Google's pedigree, Apple, has reportedly ramped up its own autonomous driving efforts of late, with its own self-driving test car recently spotted on California streets.  WATCH: World travelers will love this suitcase that doubles as a scooter

‘I (Heart) Trucks’ Day at the White House: President Trump Blows a Horn and a New Meme Is Born

President Donald Trump was still truckin’ on Thursday, despite the House moving to delay a vote on his health care bill.

The president spent the afternoon at the White House meeting with executives in the trucking industry, in a visit that has already captured the Internet’s attention.

Photos and footage from the meet-up show Trump, 70, playing in one of the semi trucks parked on the South Lawn of the White House. After posing for photos, honking the horn and pretending to drive away, the president made some remarks while wearing an “I (heart) trucks” button pin — much to the delight of Twitter.

Here are some reactions:

Some people just knew it was a meme in the making.

And at least one commenter is predicting the moment will get the SNL treatment this weekend.

“Can’t wait to see what SNL does with Trump’s Truck pin,” wrote the Twitter user.

The charts are heavily illustrated with over 500 beautiful color photos, showing the full range of vehicles available.
