Why are Walmart and Serve Robotics working together?
Los Angeles, 6/13/2022
After it was announced that Walmart is also partnering with Serve Robotics, a spokesperson for the company said it is “constantly testing new and emerging technologies to find solutions that best meet the needs of our customers.”
Serve Robotics, a spinoff of Postmates, which is part of Uber, confirmed that its robots are in use in Walmart’s hometown of Bentonville, Arkansas. Serve is also the first company in the U.S. to use Level 4 autonomous technology in its robots for commercial deliveries.That means this new generation of robots can operate consistently without a human attendant or remote operator, as long as they deliver within specific areas or geographically defined areas.
Restaurant chain Chili’s is also using Serve robots for online orders. Last month, Uber Eats launched a pilot program to deliver food in the Los Angeles area using Serve walkway robots.
