Driverless Cars Finding New Lane in Home-Based Care

Ride-hailing giants Uber (NYSE: UBER) and Lyft (Nasdaq: LYFT) formed their own health care branches and have already entered into the home-based care market through partnerships with 24 Hour Home Care, Right At Home, Homewatch CareGivers, among others. They did so because they specifically recognized the growing opportunity within home-based care.

Uber and Lyft just so happen to be two of the companies in the driverless-cars arms race that’s now fully underway.

Nuro, a Santa Clara, California-based robotics company, recently made national news when it received clearance from the federal government to deploy no more than 5,000 of its R2 vehicles on U.S. public roadways…

That’s just one potential health care application for Nuro. Even so, it’s easy to imagine how that could be of use to a home health provider or home care agency.
