Driverless cars to start delivering groceries in Arizona

Autonomous vehicle startup Nuro launched their driverless delivery service on Thursday in Scottsdale, Arizona.

A grocery giant Kroger and autonomous vehicle startup Nuro launched their driverless delivery service on Thursday in Scottsdale, Arizona. It’s actually the first market for the two companies that worked together to bring this up. They announced their partnership a few months ago.

The idea may sound crazy, but it’s only one store that’s into this experiment, for now, time would tell how it goes. Kroger owned Fry’s Food Store on The East Mcdowell Road, with the experiment of the delivery service, customers can place orders via Fry’s website or mobile app. Orders can be scheduled for the same day or next day delivery. The delivery fee is $5.95 per order, and there is no minimum order amount for now.

Source also said; groceries will be delivered through Nuro’s fleet self-driving Toyota Prius and Nissan Leaf vehicles, each of them will have a safety driver behind the wheel. But later, it will fall the company’s plans on swapping in its custom-built R1 driverless delivery service vehicles, still being tested at the Nuro’s headquarters in California.
