Walmart is reportedly partnering with Gatik AI on a new self-driving vehicle pilot programme.

The programme will include a self-driving vehicle that will move customer orders on a two-mile route between two of the retailer’s brick-and-mortar stores.

Tom Ward, senior vice president of digital operations for Walmart U.S said, ‘We’ve been exploring a few pilot projects with self-driving car companies that include both customer delivery as well as transporting goods between our locations.’

‘We aim to learn more about the logistics of adding autonomous vehicles into our online grocery ecosystem, operation process changes and more opportunities to incorporate this emerging technology,’ added Ward.
