Ex-Tesla, Uber engineers ready testing of autonomous parcel delivery vehicle

Parcel logistics company OnTrac on Thursday announced a partnership with last-mile logistics and automation startup Boxbot to test a new autonomous delivery system.

Founded by veteran Tesla and Uber engineers Austin Oehlerking and Mark Godwin, Boxbot allows recipients to schedule delivery at a time of their choosing. When Boxbot’s autonomous vehicle arrives, customers receive a text alert with a unique code that can be used to retrieve packages from lockers onboard the vehicle.
