Walmart tests autonomous grocery deliveries

|About: Walmart Inc. (WMT)|By: , SA News Editor

Walmart (NYSE:WMT) and Nuro are up and running with their autonomous vehicle grocery delivery program to select customers in Houston.

The companies say the pilot program will offer a new, affordable and accessible delivery option to select Walmart customers in the region.

The service will use Nuro's custom-built delivery vehicle that carries only products with no onboard driver or passengers. Nuro uses autonomous Toyota Priuses that are powered by the firm's proprietary self-driving software and hardware.

The service plans to expand to the general public around Houston later in 2020.
