Future of grocery shopping: Autonomous Deliveries

Many people around the globe are still used to go grocery shopping at least every other day, without realizing the time they spend shopping. However, with the technological advancement our grocery shopping might change forever.

Autonomous Deliveries

In United States a town called Scottsdale two companies are putting their efforts together to offer a disturbing technology for their clients deliveries. American supermarket chain with 2,779 retail food stores and the desire to provide seamless digital shopping experience, Kroger and robotics, AI and computer vision experts with experience in both software and hardware development, Nuro, announced the launch of the first-ever unmanned delivery service available to the general public.

Previously last year, companies had a similar service with a autonomous Prius fleet accompanied with operators, which successfully delivered around a thousand of deliveries.

Customers can use a website or a mobile application to order goods, and the order will be delivered by the autonomous vehicle on the same or next day for a flat fee of $5.95, with no minimum order requirements

As stated by a president and co-founder of Nuro in the press release, “Nuro envisions a world without errands, where everything is on-demand and can be delivered affordably. Operating a delivery service using our custom unmanned vehicles is an important first step toward that goal”

“Our autonomous delivery pilot with Nuro over the past few months continues to prove the benefit of the flexible and reliable technology. Through this exciting and innovative partnership, we are delivering a great customer experience and advancing Kroger’s commitment to redefine the grocery experience by creating an ecosystem that offers our customers anything, anytime, and anywhere.” commented Kroger’s chief digital officer, Yael Cosset.
