Nuro, a California-based startup, has developed a working prototype of an autonomous delivery vehicle. The driverless microvan is designed as a local, short distance delivery and errand vehicle. The windowless prototype was filmed completing several closed course tests that simulate real world conditions like making left turns at an intersection, stopping for pedestrians and giving road space to cyclists.

The interior of the Nuro was designed to accommodate a range of delivery and transport tasks, from packages to takeout food to dry cleaning.

Nuro was founded in 2016 by two former Principal Engineers from Google’s self-driving car project, which has become Waymo. Along with the rest of their team, they’ve achieved a lot in a short span of time.
