Robotics Market: Materials Handling, Supply Chain, Logistics


7 Eleven Nuro 400x2757-Eleven and Nuro have announced a pilot program for autonomous delivery in the state of California. Residents in Mountain View, Calif., can order products through the 7NOW delivery app and have them delivered by a self-driving vehicle.

“7-Eleven has owned and defined convenience since 1927,” said Raghu Mahadevan, the chief digital officer at 7-Eleven. “Our first foray into autonomous delivery was in 2016 when 7-Eleven became the first retailer in the U.S. to make a drone delivery to a customer’s house. Since then, we haven’t stopped looking for ways to redefine convenience for our customers inside and outside the four walls of our stores. Fast forward to 2021, and we are pushing the boundaries of innovation even further to provide customers with the first commercial autonomous delivery service in California. I can’t wait to see where we go from here.”
