Waymo, Google's self-driving car company, is moving beyond driverless taxis. The company announced on Friday that its self-driving trucks have begun hauling real cargo in the Atlanta area. A safety driver in the truck will take over if anything goes wrong.

"Over the past year, we’ve been conducting road tests of Waymo’s self-driving trucks in California and Arizona," Waymo wrote in a blog post. Now the trucks are going to haul loads to Google's data centers in the state of Georgia.

Waymo already announced in January that it was expanding testing of its self-driving taxi service to the Atlanta area.
