Ford and Domino's bring food with self-propelled cars

Tuesday, August 29th, 2017 | Gadgets

Pizza by robot? The two US companies Ford and Domino are working on this vision. From September, they want to deliver food with self-propelled cars.

          If you order Domino's near Detroit Pizza, you could get it delivered by a self-propelled car soon. From September, the fast food chain, together with Ford, wants to bring their food in some cases with Ford Fusion Hybrids, as the two companies announced on Tuesday. With the test, the corporations want to find out how consumers deal with the self-propelled cars. They want to send the vehicles to randomly selected customers in Ann Arbor, Michigan. The customers can follow the route of the car via GPS on their smartphone. By means of a text message, they are informed of how they can receive their pizza. For this, they receive a code that matches the last four payers of their own telephone number. With this you can open a container in the car, which keeps the pizzas warm.

Even if the vehicles contain self-propelled technology, they are still driven by Ford employees. With the help of scientists on board, the companies want to find out how the customers react. "We do not want to wait until we're technologically advanced and do not need the driver any more," says Sherif Marakby, vice president, driving cars at Ford, opposite The Verge. Even if the technology is not yet ready for the road, try to start the research right now. "We want to learn how people think about this kind of delivery", Domino's President Russell Weiner is quoted in a message.

      Ford wants to bring 2021 cars on the road. Domino's is only the first partner with which the Autokonzent tests the technology. Further cooperations are to follow. The pizzal supplier himself has already tried new technologies in New Zealand. There he brought food about by drone or robot. The two corporations are by far not the only ones who test automated delivery. Companies like Uber and Amazon are also trying to use self-controlled devices. How the customer is concerned will also depend on the life situation. If you have a pizza delivered to the fourth floor, you may not see any advantage in a self-propelled car, if he has to go down the road himself. This entry first appeared on t3n.de
