Walmart's Driverless Delivery Vehicle

The sound is just some elevator type music.  The music is better at my
dentist's office.

Walmart's website is a technical disaster. Anything is possible, that driverless delivery thing might succeed since apparently transportation logistics has been one of their strong suits, but only if it is not run by anybody involved with their website (like none of the programmers/managers).

As PHONY as every other store's "FREE" delivery; absolutely every customer pays for that.

I read that is why Elon Musk is selling off so much stock, he is paying for Walmart's free delivery. What a great guy! -- Rick C. - Get 1,000 miles of free Supercharging - Tesla referral code - https://ts.la/richard11209

If they crash and kill anyone Walmart will still claim the truck is operated by a "subcontractor" and they aren't liable. And if they should be found liable the US taxpayer can cover the bill.

Calling it "delivery truck" is misleading. It's a line-haul shipping between two fixed Walmart locations. Probably in the middle of the night, to minimize traffic encounters.

Of course. But this is about automated driverless delivery.
