Self-driving Delivery Vehicle Looks Like A Lunchbox


Two former lead Google engineers have designed a new type of vehicle that is focused on low-speed, local, and last-mile deliveries. The startup, named Nuro, thinks that it will reduce traffic accidents and boost local businesses who are looking for ways to thrive and compete in the age of Amazon.
