The market for autonomous vehicles just took a leap forward with the start of a pilot programme for the world’s first on-demand, self-driving grocery store. No more going to the store for your shopping, now the store will come to you. Although the worldwide grocery industry is worth nearly USD 1 trillion, less than 5 percent of grocery sales currently take place online. Robomart is building a fleet of autonomous delivery vehicles designed like mini-stores, which they will license to retailers. Customers will use an app to request the nearest Robomart. Once it arrives, they unlock the doors and chose what they want. When done, they simply close the doors and the Robomart moves on to the next customer. The Robomart will track what customers take using proprietary “grab and go” technology, and customers will be charged automatically and sent a receipt.
