    An independent grocer in the Oklahoma City area is bringing delivery via self-driving vehicles to residents, with the service launching early next year, News9.com has reported.

    Oklahoma City-based Buy For Less, which operates independent grocery stores under four banners: its namesake banner, Supermercado, Uptown Grocery and Smart Saver, is working with Udelv on what is claimed to be the "world's largest contract" for autonomous grocery delivery vehicles. The first of its kind in Oklahoma and one of the first among independent grocers, the new grocery technology will have a backup driver to start, with a local command center monitoring each vehicle's route, making necessary corrections upon completion of the research phase.
