Walmart is launching another pilot project involving self-driving technology, the company announced Tuesday. Customers in the Phoenix suburb of Surprise, Arizona, will be able to order groceries for delivery from a nearby Walmart store.
Walmart is conducting the new pilot program along with self-driving delivery startup Udelv. In its own post, Udelv says that the pilot program will begin later this month.
We talked to Udelv CEO Daniel Laury last July. Laury told us that he’s a serial entrepreneur with three previous companies under his belt. When he co-founded Udelv three years ago, he said, “pretty much every single company out there was focused on taxis; no one was doing delivery.”
