Walmart pilots Smart Box technology
HomeValet and Walmart have partnered up to bring a new method of grocery delivery to Walmart’s shoppers. The goal was to conveniently deliver fresh groceries to a shopper’s front door any time of the day, whether they are home or not. They came up with the Smart Box; a temperature-controlled box placed outside connected through an ‘internet-of-things’ platform. The box has three different temperature zones to keep various items fresh.
