Nuro received the Autonomous Vehicle Deployment Permit from the State of California. This regulatory approval, a significant achievement for the AV industry, is a meaningful step to bring commercial autonomous delivery to Californians, which will provide safety, economic, and environmental benefits to many people in the future.
Nuro has operated R2 on public roads in California under the testing permit issued by the CA DMV earlier this year. With this deployment permit, the company can begin making autonomous deliveries with new and existing retail partners in San Mateo and Santa Clara counties soon. As with all past deployments, Nuro will begin its California delivery service with autonomous Priuses and later introduce R2, its autonomous delivery vehicle.
