Walmart is testing a robotic vending machine for delivery
Walmart is testing a robotic delivery vending machine from Tortoise, a Silicon Valley startup, Business Insider reports the report.
Walmart is using robots to sell chocolate eggs and Kinder beef jerky to shoppers waiting for pickup orders in the parking lot.
The Tortoise robots drive up to the customer’s car, and once the customer pays with a credit card, the robot’s lid opens so they can retrieve their item.
Walmart said it is testing the robot in “store 100” near its headquarters in Bentonville, Arkansas.
Companies are deploying Tortoise robots at sports venues and conferences, giving attendees a quick and easy way to purchase snacks and drinks.
In May, Aramark Sports + Entertainment and Capital One announced plans to use Turtle robots to bring baked goods to fans during the Stanley Cup Playoffs
