Grocery giant Walmart is trialling autonomous vehicle technology with a new pilot programme

Autonomous vehicle company Udelv is partnering with Walmart for the programme which will take place in Surprise, Arizona. 

A cargo van custom-made to deliver fresh groceries and hand-picked by personal shoppers will be used in the trial.

In a statement, the company said it was “still learning – it’s a pilot – but, we want to make sure we stay on the cutting edge of grocery delivery by exploring what’s new and next”.

Walmart added that it had recently explored a few pilot projects with other self-driving car companies to start understanding how customers will want to use the technology when it comes to their grocery shopping.
