The vehicle will drive fresh produce from the supermarket aisle to customers.

Grocery chains can license the platform and the vehicles, which allows them to pocket the delivery fee instead of some on-demand delivery startup.

A robot grocery called Robotmart is coming for the humble delivery worker in California.

This week at the Consumer Electronics Show, a startup (of the same name) debuted a self-driving, nearly fully autonomous grocery store on wheels.

The robot will bring fruits, vegetables, and other perishable items from the supermarket aisle to customers' doors.

According to Robotmart founder Ali Ahmed, the company could compete with the on-demand giants taking on grocery delivery services, like Amazon, Instacart, and Postmates.
