Walmart To Test Robotic Deliveries With Cruise’s Electric Self-Driving Vehicles

Brief Project Information

Walmart wants to learn whether robotic deliveries fit in with its retail operations so it’s launching a pilot program with General Motors backed Cruise using the tech startup’s electric, self-driving to haul groceries and other goods to suburban Phoenix customers.

More information about the project

The project starts sometime in early 2021 and will use battery-powered vehicles in Cruise’s test fleet in Scottsdale, Arizona, Tom Ward, Walmart’s senior vice president for customer product, said in a blog post Tuesday. Cruise has said the electricity used to charge up its self-driving fleet comes entirely from renewable resources, which helps the retailer’s goal of curbing carbon emissions from its operations.
