Self-Driving Grocery Service Brings The Store Straight To Shoppers’ Homes

AutoX created an AI-enabled service that allows customers to either pre-order their groceries to be delivered or shop a pre-loaded autonomous vehicle in the privacy of their own residence

Many consumers have moved away from traditional grocery shopping and companies increasingly are looking for ways to service these customers. Silicon Valley-based AI automotive company AutoX has jumped into the fray by announcing the launch of its self-driving delivery service that aims to bring the grocery store straight to the shopper’s home.

AutoX’s self-driving cars are loaded up with popular grocery choices. Customers can either pre-order the grocery or have the truck come to their home, where they can choose their items on-site. The vehicle uses a temperature-controlled environment to keep items like produce or yogurt fresh, alongside a stock of items like juices and snacks.

As labor costs can be significant for grocery stores and delivery sites, the autonomous feature of the service enables AutoX to provide the program. The service further differentiates itself by offering consumers the option of selecting their own foods in the comfort of their own residence rather than having them selected remotely by store associates. The program will have its pilot in the San Jose, California area with plans to move to other areas of the state.
