Don’t worry if you start to spot traffic in the city with no one in the driver’s seat.
Loblaws is said to have signed an agreement with the Gatik Bay area technology company to bring the first self-driving delivery vehicles to Canada.
Companies will start testing driverless cars in GTA in January.
The five cars, operated by Gatik, are set to deliver to Loblaws retail locations around the city in 12 hours a day, seven days a week.
Cargo is picked up at an automated pick-up facility and self-driving software designed for both urban and highway driving.
During the test, the vehicles will have an assistant driver to ensure safety.
As of January 1, 2019, any participant in the Ontario auto test program is allowed to test a driverless car on public roads according to specific requirements. All vehicles must have passengers in the vehicle or the operator of the vehicle remotely monitoring the vehicle.
