Instead of greeting a delivery boy after ordering a Domino’s pizza, customers in Europe will soon have the pleasure of accepting their purchases from robots.
Domino’s announced plans to deliver pizzas to customers in Germany and the Netherlands via robot.
Domino’s Pizza Enterprises Ltd. created a special project group, Domino’s Robotic Unit, to oversee the project, which will use six-wheeled self-driving delivery robots created by London-based Starship Technologies. The battery-powered robot, which can carry up to 20 pounds, will drive itself to customers’ locations via sidewalks instead of roads.
Domino’s already launched successful autonomous vehicle programs in New Zealand and Australia in 2016, and New Zealand saw its first drone-delivered pizza in November.
