US supermarkets to offer same-day autonomous deliveries

America's largest grocer, Kroger Co has partnered with the tech company Nuro to create a self-driving delivery service that promises a fully autonomous delivery experience. Together, America's largest supermarket retailer and the maker of the world's first fully unmanned road vehicle, are working to make the convenience of grocery delivery accessible to customers everywhere. Through this partnership, customers can place same-day delivery orders through Kroger's ClickList ordering system and Nuro's app. During the test, orders will be delivered by Nuro's fleet of autonomous vehicles. Kroger's expansive retail footprint of 2,800 stores in 35 states combined with Nuro's technology platform could change the status quo of grocery delivery through convenience at a low price. This allows customers to get what they need, when they need it, wherever they are. "Unmanned delivery will be a game-changer for local commerce, and together with Kroger, we're thrilled to test this new delivery experience to bring grocery customers new levels of convenience and value," said Dave Ferguson, Co-Founder, Nuro. "Our safe, reliable, and affordable service, combined with Kroger's ubiquitous brand, is a powerful first step in our mission to accelerate the benefits of robotics for everyday life."
