Interview: How An AI Robotics Company Is Pioneering A Future Of Autonomous Delivery
Nuro co-founder and president Dave Ferguson explains why automated delivery for consumer goods like grocery and beyond is poised to provide next-level accessibility and convenience at reduced cost, all while improving safety, creating jobs and reducing pollution
As AI and automation become increasingly prevalent in more aspects of the consumer's life, the automotive category stands out as a category particularly vulnerable to disruption. Nuro, a technology company based in Silicon Valley, is working on developing autonomous solutions and using robotics to improve human life. Founders Dave Ferguson and Jiajun Zhu, who also served as principal engineers for Google's self-driving car concept (now Waymo), developed Nuro to offer a fully autonomous, on-road vehicle designed to transport goods more quickly and conveniently than before.
