Waymo set to test autonomous truck tech in Texas

Waymo, the autonomous vehicle division of Google parent company Alphabet, plans to begin mapping Interstates in Texas and New Mexico this week in a lead up to testing its self-driving semis.

The company’s Chrysler Pacificas will be trailed by its big rigs, which won’t be loaded with freight and will have a driver on board, in and around major cities like El Paso, Dallas and Houston.

“These are interesting and promising commercial routes,” Waymo said in a tweet Thursday, “and we’ll be using our vehicles to explore how the Waymo Driver might be able to create new transportation solutions.”

Waymo earlier this month claimed to have logged 20 million miles of public testing with its autonomous cars.
