Dominos Launch Robot Delivery Service

Dominos in New Zealand have launched a Domino's Robotic Unit (DRU) that will deliver pizzas to customers.

The Irish Independent is reporting that the four wheeled machine will have room for up to 10 pizzas and will have a range of 20 miles.

It is the world's first autonomous pizza delivery vehicle. Users will receive a special code to open the bot to get their pizza.

The four-wheeled robotic unit travels up to speeds of 20km/h and is designed to cruise on footpaths, trails, and bike paths, according to the Irish Examiner.

Domino’s Group CEO and managing director, Don Meij said "the autonomous vehicles were set to open up new opportunities and create an impetus for innovation for Domino’s globally and in Australia".
