Cruise Automation was founded in 2013 by Kyle Vogt and Dan Kan, with a shared a vision to transform mobility through the large-scale deployment of autonomous vehicle technology. In August, DoorDashdisclosed that it was on track to close 2018 with a presence in 2,000 cities, which should make it possible to smoothly expand the self-driving vehicle pilot beyond San Francisco over time. "Partnering with DoorDash will provide us with critical learnings as we further our mission to deliver technology that makes people's lives better and more convenient". Customers will receive an alert as the self-driving auto approaches the address.
The test is focused on determining the key technical and infrastructure challenges with autonomous deliveries, how autonomous delivery can positively impact merchants and customers and whether autonomous vehicles are capable of achieving the same quality standards as DoorDash without self-driving vehicles, according to the company. The companies will also explore linking up with grocery deliveries for certain stores already working with DoorDash.
Both companies announced the new pilot program on Thursday days after former GM President Dan Ammann took over as CEO of Cruise.
DoorDash is a technology company that connects customers with their favorite local and national businesses in 3,000 cities across the United States and Canada.
