(NBC) – CVS Pharmacy is planning to start delivering prescriptions with a self-driving vehicle.
The pilot program is set to launch next month in Houston.
The healthcare company has partnered with Nuro, a company that’s been developing autonomous driving technology.
Delivery will be free to customers for orders through CVS’s website or the CVS Pharmacy app.
Nuro will start with a modified Toyota Prius, equipped with self-driving technology before transitioning to a self-driving delivery vehicle called R2 in the coming months.
