AutoX is launching a grocery delivery and mobile store pilot in San Jose.
California-based artificial intelligence (A.I.) company, AutoX, has released a fleet of autonomous vehicles into the San Jose market, delivering fresh produce and groceries to local residents.
“We’re very excited to launch the first autonomous grocery delivery and mobile store service in the heart of Silicon Valley with self-driving vehicles on the road,” said AutoX Founder and CEO Jianxiong Xiao.
Groceries are preserved in a temperature-controlled environment inside the driverless vehicle, and when an AutoX car arrives at its destination, the windows roll down allowing the customer to pick the items he has ordered.
“We are enabling two shopping experiences with self-driving cars,” explains AutoX COO Jewel Li. “You can order goods from an app and get them delivered by a self-driving vehicle. Or, our self-driving car brings a shelf of goods to you, and you can select and purchase onsite in front of your house.”
