Nuro is focusing specifically on goods delivery. This means that our zero-occupant vehicles are used to transport goods rather than people.
Our vehicles don't have drivers. Or passengers. We'll pull up right to your curb, and all you'll need to do is enter a code on the pin pad to access your order.
R2 is fully licensed, registered, and insured to operate on public roads in each of the states where we operate. It is the first autonomous vehicle to receive an approved exemption from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. See NHTSA's exemption approval. Nuro was the first company to be granted a commercial deployment permit by the State of California, and we comply with applicable regulations for autonomous vehicle operations in each of our operating locations.
The safest vehicle is a vehicle that lets you stay home while your goods come to you. Our bots are more nimble, narrower, and better able to prioritize the wellbeing of other road users. But that’s not just our opinion—read the research from Virginia Tech Transportation Institute that shows zero-occupant vehicle design can reduce the risk of fatality or injury in a crash by nearly 60%.
Yes. Our cameras and sensors are able to see and identify both small children and pets.
Our vehicles are designed to operate exclusively on public roads just like other cars and trucks. Nuro is not a sidewalk or bike lane robot.
We're always looking for great partners. Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org, and we'll reach out.
A recent economic impact report by Steer found that delivery AVs will create and sustain 3.4 million jobs from 2025-2035 in the U.S. Creating a meaningful local delivery service requires long-term investments in communities and employees who will join us on our mission. That means more jobs, such as:
- Grocery store employees to pick and pack fresh food being delivered into our neighborhoods
- Mechanics and technicians to assemble and maintain an entirely new fleet of small electric vehicles
- Engineers to invent lighter-weight parts and components that make a vehicle safer on the roads
- Software developers to constantly iterate and improve upon autonomous vehicle driving systems
- Fleet managers, environmental health and safety specialists, industrial designers, city and community engagement professionals, transportation planners, and a resurgence of other jobs across local retail businesses
