A pizza delivery Robot car will soon be launched by Domino’s. The pizza producing company will roll out a delivery service to choose customers in Houston. For customers who decide to partake in this, they will receive their pies in Nuro’s autonomous vehicle.
This robot car delivery service works in a special and convenient way. Customers in Houston can select robot delivery and get information on the car’s location through texts and they will also receive a numerical code used to retrieve the order.
The customer inputs the code on the screen of the bot once the car arrives and the car doors will open up to deliver the food. According to Domino’s, Nuro’s autonomous car was the first robotic and human-free-on-road delivery vehicle to get approved by the Department of Transportation in the US.

This isn’t the first time this Michigan-based pizza company would venture into autonomous deliveries. Domino’s made use of a self-driving Ford Fusion hybrid to get pizzas delivered to randomly chosen customers in Ann Arbor, Michigan in 2017. Domino’s tried out delivering pizza through drone in the United Kingdom in 2013.
There is still so much for our brand to learn about the autonomous delivery space. This pizza delivery robot car will allow us to better understand how customers respond to the deliveries, how they interact with the robot, and how it affects store operations.Dennis Maloney, Domino’s senior vice president
