It’s official, Nuro has received the first ever Autonomous Vehicle Deployment Permit from the State of California. This means the company can now launch the first commercial autonomous vehicle service in the state, which provides safety, economic, and environmental benefits to many people in the future. The R2 EV has been used on public roads in California under the testing permit issued by the CA DMV earlier this year, but now, it can make autonomous deliveries with new as well as existing retail partners in San Mateo / Santa Clara counties soon.

The Nuro R2 boasts a more durable vehicle body to handle tougher roads and weather compared to its predecessor, while a 360-degree vision system as well as a new sensor array keep it clear of obstacles. Interior storage compartments are all temperature controlled to help keep foods fresh. Its custom battery system nearly doubled the R2’s battery capacity, enabling all-day operation
For added safety, the vehicle’s front end is designed to protect pedestrians, as collapses inwards in the event of a collision.
