Following the announcement a few weeks ago by Waymo, which has since been operating a completely driverless robotaxi service in Phoenix, the announcements by GM Cruise, which plans to become completely driverless in San Francisco this year, and AutoX and Zoox, which have been granted driverless licenses in California, Mountain View-based delivery robot manufacturer Nuro.ai is now announcing that it has already deployed its R2 delivery robot in three cities in recent months.

The delivery robot drove without a driver or occupant on board, and without a chase car, a vehicle with engineers who stop the vehicle in an emergency.
