Dominos is about to start delivering pizzas with autonomous robots

If you’re in the Houston, Texas area and in the mood for pizza, you may soon be able to get some Domino’s delivered by a small, self-driving robot. The pizza chain announced today (June 17) that it has entered into a partnership with Nuro, a robotics delivery startup, to test using its robots to transport pizzas from a store in Houston. Nuro announced an initial funding round in 2018 to help it build small autonomous trucks that could deliver goods, including groceries, flowers, hardware products, or just about anything else that would fit in the robots.
