Walmart is partnering with two tech companies to pilot driverless grocery delivery in select Arizona locations

U.S. superstore Walmart is slated to begin testing self-driving grocery delivery service in certain Arizona markets. The program is in partnership with Baidu, a Chinese platform for self-driving cars, and Udelv, a company that manufactures automated vehicles, who will be supplying vans that are made specifically for grocery delivering.

The trial will begin in late January and will be first available to residents in the city of Surprise, Arizona. This trial test will help Walmart decide if an expansion to other states where self driving cars are allowed on the road will be a part of its future. Furthermore, the retailer hopes that piloting a service like this in a city where road conditions are rarely affected by the weather should make for a stable control test for the service and yield useful results for determining the viability of driverless capabilities.
