Self-Driving Delivery Vehicle
Please consider Ford Driverless Cars to Deliver Domino's Pizzas.
Domino's Pizza and Ford Motor Co. announced Tuesday that they are teaming up to test how consumers will react to having their orders delivered by an autonomous vehicle, as a number of companies explore how to integrate the emerging technology into their business models.
Ford has promised to build a fully driverless car by 2021, while Domino's hopes to someday replace all of its drivers with driverless cars.
Starting Wednesday, randomly selected customers in Ann Arbor — which is home to an autonomous vehicle research center and testing facility — will receive their pizza order from a Ford Fusion Hybrid Autonomous research vehicle. The car will be manually driven by a Ford engineer and staffed with researchers to gauge customers' reactions.
