Waymo to start testing self-driving cars in Atlanta

January 22, 2018

(Reuters) – Waymo, Alphabet Inc’s self-driving car unit, would start testing its self-driving vehicles in Atlanta, it said on Twitter on Monday.

“Atlanta is a major hub for technology and innovation, and a natural fit for Waymo’s testing program,” Waymo said on Twitter. (http://bit.ly/2DyOp6W)

With over eight years of testing under its belt, Waymo is a pioneer of self-driving technology, and is already testing vehicles in suburban Phoenix, Michigan, Silicon Valley and San Francisco.

While self-driving car companies test their vehicles in public, they routinely have a human in the driver’s seat ready to take over if the technology fails.
