Walmart and Ford to test grocery delivery with self-driving cars

National/World

Walmart is partnering with Ford to explore delivery with autonomous vehicle technology.

The pilot program is taking place in Miami-Dade County. Walmart aims to learn more about taking advantage of self-driving vehicles to deliver fresh groceries to customers.

Walmart and Ford agree autonomous vehicles have an important role to play for the future of delivery. Before self-driving cars can go mainstream, Walmart and Ford must get a better sense of how people want to interact with them.

Walmart already offers grocery delivery in 100 metro areas.
