Walmart testing self-driving vehicles in Bentonville, Ark.

BENTONVILLE, Ark. (WMC) - Walmart is launching a new pilot program in Arkansas, involving autonomous cars.

The pilot program is being tested in the company’s hometown of Bentonville.

Self-driving cars will move customer orders on a two-mile route between two of the retailer’s brick-and-mortar stores.

In March, Arkansas passed legislation allowing for autonomous vehicles to operate in the state.
