Ocado has unveiled a partnership and £10m investment into autonomous mobility start-up Wayve, which will focus on bringing automation to the last mile for the etailer and its international grocery partners.

The online grocer will work with Wayve to “accelerate the development of autonomous grocery deliveries for complex urban environments”.

Wayze’s technology uses deep learning and camera-first technology to adapt to new and complex environments “without the need for pre-programming, human-designed rules, or high definition mapping.”
