Robomart brings the produce stand to your street

This autonomous vehicle you see here is the latest attempt to kill the local corner store and steal some of the money that big grocery stores like Walmart are making.

It would seem that Hotz decided to kick out a self-driving car using a 2016 Acura ILX in "about a month." He's using Ubuntu Linux as his operating system and has an absurdly massive 21.5-inch display sitting in the middle.
