The weblog publish additional describes the inspections and documentation which are required earlier than and after the journey. On the finish, Aurora mentions the long-term plan to cowl the “first mile” and “final mile”, as nicely.

“Sooner or later, as we mature our know-how, we plan to transition to an end-to-end driver-as-a-service model-where Aurora Driver-powered vans transfer buyer masses to and from warehouses, and in the end from distribution facilities to shops…”

All of that is topic to vary, in fact. Since Aurora is a public firm the weblog publish finishes with some boilerplate legalese concerning the future being unknowable:
