It is a bit early for large-scale use, but Albert Heijn has already presented a robot car for delivery of groceries.
The intention is that in the future you will place orders with AH to go with an app and that the automatic car will then bring you your shopping. The robot is not yet visible on the road. Legislation and regulations must be adjusted for this.
Albert Heijn will test the trolley next summer at the tech campus in Eindhoven.
“That way you can keep working while the car comes to bring you lunch,” says Albert Heijn.
But the robot cart also has other advantages. It can save up to 90% in transportation costs, according to Austrian builder TeleRetail on its website.
