Self-driving cars begin transporting groceries to Texas homes

Sunday 19:04 GMT

Two Kroger markets in Houston are rolling out a self-driving car program, in which orders can be placed online and delivered right to your home without a driver.

The company aims to roll out its unmanned driverless R1 delivery vehicles in Texas within the next few weeks, but in the meantime, it'll use a Toyota Prius fleet. "Initially, we are going to start delivering with our self-driving Prius vehicles, so these are passenger vehicles just like regular Priuses that we've added sensing and computing to so they can drive themselves," Nuro co-founder and president Dave Ferguson told ABC13.

Elon Musk reportedly calls on all Tesla workers to help with end-of-quarter delivery crush

Friday 12:40 GMT

Elon Musk says delivering new cars to customers should be every Tesla worker’s “primary priority” through the end of March, according to a new report. Business Insider late Thursday published what it said was an internal email from Tesla’s chief executive, with a subject line of “Vehicle Delivery Help Needed!,” that urged employees to pitch in to help clear “a massive wave of deliveries . . .

Musk reportedly said the delivery backup is a one-time perfect logistical storm, caused by a “massive increase in delivery volume” in China and Europe, along with supplier issues that have only recently been resolved.

Boeing makes safety change, Indonesian airline cancels order

Today 08:04 GMT

Indonesian airline Garuda said on Friday it would cancel a $6 billion order for Boeing 737 MAX jets, citing concerns over passenger confidence, as Boeing tried to quell safety worries by making a previously optional cockpit warning light compulsory.

National carrier Garuda is the first airline to publicly announce plans to scrap an order since a total of 346 people were killed in 737 MAX crashes in Indonesia and Ethiopia, leading the world’s entire fleet of the aircraft to be grounded.
