Flash decision from California! First approval for cargo delivery with autonomous vehicles

...


The U.S. State of California has given approval for commercial delivery service with driverless vehicles on public roads for the first time.

A statement from the California Motor Vehicle Administration (DMV) said the distribution permit for driverless vehicles had been granted to the company Nuro, which develops autonomous distribution vehicles.

The state's first autonomous vehicle distribution permit was given attention to the statement, as opposed to the test permit distribution permit gave the company the authority to use its autonomous technology commercially.

The statement said the maximum speed of driverless vehicles will be 40 kilometres per hour and will only be used in good weather on streets with a speed limit of no more than 56 kilometres per hour.

Nuro, which has been testing its autonomous vehicles in California since 2017, tested two driverless delivery vehicles in 9 cities with the authority granted earlier this year.

The company, which announced it would start its delivery service with an autonomous Prius fleet, said it would then use a specially designed electric R2 vehicle that does not have a steering wheel and will only be available for packages.
