California all set to open gates for Driverless Delivery Service!

Nuro a robotic startup plans to start its driverless delivery operations in California as early as next year.

They previously tested their R2 vehicles in the state in April, but the permit will now allow them to charge people for their service.

Nuro’s vehicles are designed to operate without a driver or any passengers in them.

The R2 utilizes radar, thermal imaging, and 360-degree cameras to direct its movement whilst it lacks a steering wheel, pedals, or side-view mirrors.

The vehicle has an egg-shaped frame which is quite smaller than most cars present in the US. Furthermore, it has two temperature-controlled compartments for deliveries.

The doors of the vehicle raise up to reveal the items after a code has been entered by the individual.

A previous trial took place in Houston, Texas, in February where the R2 delivered pizza for Domino’s Pizza, groceries from supermarket chain Kroger and other items for Walmart.
However, transport experts state that safety issues would continue to be a concern.

The company’s vehicles will be limited to a speed of 35mph (56km/h) and will be restricted to only operating in fair weather conditions.

The world currently moves towards having numerous trials involving various autonomous vehicles.
