Domino’s pizzas now delivered with autonomous cars in Houston #Robocar
This might be one of the cutest ways to get your pizza delivery. Nuro bots are making Domino deliveries. Dominos is always trying to innovate with new tech, the Nuro R2s are the first street vehicles to be permitted to operate completely unmanned.
Domino’s and Nuro announced Monday that the latter’s autonomous car will report for pizza delivery duty this week. It’s only for customers in the vicinity of a single pizza shop in the Houston area, but still — this is wild. On certain days and in blocked-out periods of time, customers can request their pizza for delivery via a Nuro R2 if they place a prepaid order online. Domino’s will select a customer at random to carry out the delivery order, and the customer will receive text message notifications saying where the little robocar is. They’ll also get a PIN that’ll let them access their order when it arrives. No pizza thievery allowed, guys.
