British Supermarket, Ocado, trials a Driverless delivery service  

Ocado, a British internet-based supermarket, have commenced testing of driverless grocery deliveries.
They are working with Oxford based Autonomous vehicle firm, Oxbotica, with an initial two week trial in London.

Ocado is unique in as much as it has no chain of stores, providing 100% of home deliveries from its warehouses, requiring a highly efficient delivery service.

Zoe Kleinman of the BBC has been shown the technology involved. The driverless service could commence as early as 2021, but in the early days, this would be confined to light deliveries only.
