Walmart is about to cut out physically going to their store for groceries, as the big company is about to test a self-driving grocery delivery vehicle.

Walmart is partnering up with Nuro's self-driving R1 vehicle, which will be the people's grocery ox and cart for all intents and purposes. The test run will be conducted in Houston, Texas, and only for select stores and customers who opted into the program.

The whole point of the test is so Walmart and Nuro can "develop and refine" this coming service, which is sure to gain traction in the years to come. This new technology isn't right around the corner just yet, as both Walmart and Nuro have many real-world obstacles they have to overcome. Examples of this would be snow, random sidewalk objects, speed of delivery, the accuracy of delivery, regulations etc, etc.
