Stepping up the race for automated deliveries, Casino’s urban banner Franprix and its partner TwinswHeel will test delivery robots on the streets of Paris.

For the elderly and disabled, the robot can accompany customers within a radius of one kilometer around the store. Franprix Managing Director Jean-Paul Mochet said that three robots will be tested in Paris stores and if the test is successful, it will be extended to other Franprix stores. The delivery service will be free.
