Autonomous vehicles have been talked about extensively during the past few years. Early on, fully autonomous vehicles that could drive themselves without any interaction from a driver were promised in 2020. It’s 2021, and we’re not there yet. Testing centers have been established in a number of cities, and there are some small starts.

Houston has a pilot autonomous delivery service that has partnered with Kroger and CVS to deliver groceries or prescriptions in certain ZIP codes. Either an autonomous Toyota Prius or a custom-built driverless vehicle will drive to the customer’s residence where the customer can retrieve their groceries or medications. Nuro is the company providing the vehicles for these tests; it is a robotics company working to improve the way people live through the use of robotics and artificial intelligence.
