Self-driving car company Nuro, which aims to create a fleet of small unmanned cars that deliver food and goods, has quietly expanded its testing operations in the metro Phoenix area, Arizona Mirror has learned. 

The company had previously been primarily testing in Scottsdale, but confirmed to the Mirror that it has expanded to other parts of “Greater Phoenix” in “the last few weeks,” according to Emma Esrock of LaunchSquad, a public relations firm hired by Nuro. 

In late 2018, Nuro began conducting fully autonomous deliveries of groceries as part of a partnership with Fry’s in Scottsdale. 

The program officially ended in March of this year, Esrock said. 

However, she said testing of Nuro vehicles continued in Scottsdale, and now that testing has spread to parts of Phoenix, including downtown.
